The iconic symbol that honors those killed in the September 11th attacks and celebrates the unbreakable spirit of New York lights up the sky today.

The Tribute in Lights twin beams reach four miles into the sky each year to never forget. 88 7,000-watt xenon light bulbs represent the Twin Towers that fell on that fateful day.

The Memorial Plaza is open to the public from 3 p.m. to midnight in New York City to view the Tribute in Light. The lights are so bright it can be seen from a 60-mile radius around lower Manhattan.

IN 2016, photographer Richard McCormack captured what looked like an angel at the top of the light tribute.
