    I think that they WILL shine at night, but I'm not sure yet.

    They're all antennas and the real world array isn't going to look even 1/10 as orderly.

    The view from atop the top antenna ring, just a little more than 1,400' up in the air.

    If it's anything like what they were planning to do before it will be glass over steel gratings over the aluminum louveres you can see right now.

    Too bad they wouldn't consider including an outdoor observation deck on that ring.

    Yeah, who wouldn't want to be surrounded by loud-ass 20 foot fans shooting hot air up at you while the dozens of antenna arrays around you slowly sterilize your junk?

    I'm happy that they are even putting one in there.

    Though we may not have a great big skyroom restaurant. Let's be thankful for what we've got.
