I've never been to Chicago, so I could be wrong, but I still think these two tower's antennas/spires are very similar in their lighting scheme. Even though the Willis Tower doesn't have a triangular-shaped beacon, 1 World Trade Center and the Willis Tower's spires/antennas are GOING to look a lot like each other once 1 World Trade Center's spire is lit up white every night. I'm sorry if I used bad pictures, though.

And anyway, One World Trade Center's beacon is back to its "original" state. I hope the testing has influenced the CTBUH.

its too windy and cold to stand outside and watch it, i'll stick to earthcam
I can definitely see why they say someone could see it from 50 miles out, it's really bright when the light faces your direction. Where I was standing is probably half that distance

What's up with the eerie blue light on near 7WTC's base?
