Pretty much this .

Once you can post images, just upload them to Imgur and then share the URL. You don't need an account for Imgur and their set up is fairly simple. If the image already exists on the web then just use that URL.

I haven't seen any mention of it already in the past few pages, but...

I'm told that the spire lighting and beacon will be turned on Saturday and Sunday for the Super Bowl, and it may even be turned on as soon as Friday night.

Also hearing that the they hope to turn it on permanently sometime in February.

Please don't ask me to share my sources (I always get that request) because I won't.

Just keep an eye on the sky and hopefully during the game, we'll get some great shots of 1WTC with a lit-up spire and beacon.

Thanks! Confirmed:

WTC Progress:
The Port Authority of NY & NJ and The Durst Organization will light the spire atop One World Trade Center tonight to welcome the AFC Champion Denver Broncos, NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks and the millions of fans coming to the region for Super Bowl XLVIII.

In coordination with the NFLís unveiling of the roman numerals XLVIII on Super Bowl Boulevard in Midtown Manhattan on Wednesday, January 29, the spire will be lit orange honoring the AFC Champion Denver Broncos and bright green honoring the NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks. The teamís colors will alternate until the gameís conclusion, and then the winning teamís color will be seen across the entire metropolitan region.

yup Beacon's on. I could see it from here up north. There's also a nice winter sunset. The temperature's been cold enough to regularly produce some beautiful colors.

Starting at 6pm tonight, the WTC spire will glow with #SuperBowl team colors http://4.nbcny.com/ZKsSI50 @NBCNewYork

The World Trade Center spire will glow with the colors of the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks in honor of the Super Bowl being played across the river this weekend.

The Port Authority said the spire will alternate with orange, for the Broncos, and bright green, for the Seahawks, beginning at 6 p.m. Wednesday and continuing through the game.

After the game Sunday, the winning team's color will light the spire at the top of the 1,776-foot building, the tallest in the U.S.

The building was topped with the spire last year and has not yet opened to tenants.
sounds like this will be every night until the super bowl

Driving home from work on the Jackie Robinson Parkway, I caught the beacon out of the corner of my eye, and damn that sucker is bright. I couldn't even tell if the spire was on though, unfortunately. The ESB antenna is way brighter.
