Imagine Peace tower lit amongst spectacular Northern Lights

Crowds attended the lighting of the Imagine Peace Tower by Yoko Ono last night, on what would have been John Lennon's 78th birthday. 

Despite some rain, Northern Lights managed to break through the cloud cover and added a magical touch to the ceremony. Musical acts at the ceremony last night included choir Graduale Nobili who sang Lennon's song, Imagine. 

The pillar of light from the artwork reaches some four kilometres into the night sky. It will be switched of on December 8th, the day that marks the death of John Lennon.
