From the Winter Solstice, the beam can be seen lighting up the night sky into the morning of a New Year, as well as on Yoko Ono's birthday and in the week of Spring Equinox. The ever-changing weather conditions on the island impact the strength, intensity and brilliance of the tower at times.Yoko Ono chose Iceland as the home of the monument as it doesn't have an army and is considered one of the most peaceful countries in the world.
