The Tribute in Light by Steven Kelley and Mark Lennihan via My Modern Met

Pair these stunning photos with “Souls Tumbling in the Light,” a blog post by NPR Correspondent Robert Krulwich detailing how the beams of light attract thousands of migrating birds each year.

From the street below, he could hear them crying out, making their night calls. Multiplied by thousands, their cries were louder than the city traffic. “As we walked closer, the birds became more brilliant and numerous, a mass of charged, speeding particles. As each crossed into the light, it was suddenly branded white, turned into pure light.”
