They really need to light the top floors or do something with the rings it looks too separate from the building. Besides that it looks gorgeous!!!

I've heard that this is just a lightshow for toight. However, it could be turned on permanently very soon.

Don't know exactly what this means but read the end of this short article, says "from 5:30 pm, onward."

Just saw the beacon from the new Shop Rite parking lot in Morris Plains, NJ......the beacon is FREAKIN BRIGHT and I mean BRIGHT! I was 25 miles away and this thing is blinding and will leave a white spot on your eyes even when you look away......Although you only see it every 10-15 seconds or so because it needs to do a full revolution......I'll take pics soon, plus I'll post the Hoboken ones from today in a little bit!

Wow, the beacon is much, much, much brighter than anticipated. If you're in the hills of New Jersey it's going to hit you hard. Amazing stuff New York City.

Various helicopters circling the Trade Center, here's hoping to some good footage.

Well that was a fun experience. It's cold as hell out there, though.

What they're doing right now is their color-testing. If you haven't noticed, they're doing all combinations of reds and blues (with white, of course). Everything so far has been reds, pinks, purples, and blues. They'll go through their entire series of tests on this color range before they move on to the yellows, oranges, greens, etc.

the beacon seems to be coming into view every 18-20 seconds. That's a half-turn, not a complete 360. The beacon shines out at 180 degrees from two sides.
