Illuminated on March equinox
The Imagine Peace Tower in Viðey island will be illuminated Monday, 20 March, the day Yoko Ono and John Lennon got married in 1969. Their wedding was followed by a week-long honeymoon where Lennon and Ono staged a “Bed-In” for peace at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel.
That day, the 20th March, is also the day of March equinox – which marks the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from south to north. The Imagine Peace tower will be lit until Monday 27th March. The March equinox has long been celebrated as a time of rebirth in the Northern Hemisphere.
The light of the Imagine Peace Tower can be seen from Reykjavik and also here.
