The Roanoke Star

Fog – Daytime – Sunset – Night

I think the best time to view the Roanoke Star up close is in that short period after the star comes on but before the sun goes completely down.  There’s just something beautiful about seeing the star all lit up and seeing the sky still blue behind it.  This photo shoot was done in June 2002, about three months after the photos on the other pages in this set.


The star's on!  Let's go up to the top!

The lights are on, and the sky is blue.  I love the way the star sits against the structure and the sky.

I think it's quite impressive viewing the star from an upward angle like these where you can see that the Roanoke Star is basically flat, attached to a massive support structure.

The Roanoke skyline at sunset is a gorgeous sight, with the buildings already lit up before the sun's gone completely down, allowing for a beautiful lighting of building features.

As the sun continues to go down, the support structure continues its slow fade into obscurity for the night.

The star almost appears to be standing on the brush beneath it, in this view of the lower portions.

From this straight-on vantage point, it almost appears as if the star is floating in front of its support structure, don't you think?

At this point, the sunlight is nearly gone, as the star is almost lit solely by its neon tubes.
