Twin beams of light in New York City commemorate 9-11 victims
(World News) 2 months ago

Two powerful light beams shown bright from Lower Manhattan in commemoration for those who lost their lives on 9/11, but cloudy skies prevented the full scale of the tribute to be seen.

 

The 'Tribute in Light' installation is a solemn dedication to those who died during the attack on the World Trade Center in 2001. It has become a staple for New York as the tribute goes into it's 16th year.

 

 

The lights can reached up to four miles in height, weather permitting, and were made of 887,000-watt xenon light bulbs.

.

The lights faded away at dawn on Wednesday.

 

The two fixtures were positioned in two 48ft squares and is done so in an effort to resemble the shape of the Twin Towers.

 

This year the 'Tribute in Light' was sponsored by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
