Light side of the moon: NYC basks under spectacular lunar display
A full moon rose over the city that never sleeps on Friday night, adding a glow to the Manhattan skyline.
Among the hordes of visitors that have descended upon the Big Apple for the holiday season, tourists standing at a park along the Hudson River in Hoboken, New Jersey witnessed the breathtaking scene of the full moon rising above the skyscraper on a cold's winter night.
The tower lights on the Empire State Building, standing tall at 1,454 feet, were colored orange and purple on the north/south side in honor of the school colors of Syracuse University, one contender playing in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl on Saturday at Yankee Stadium in New York.
The east/west side of the tower was lit blue and yellow in a nod to West Virginia University, who will face Syracuse in the college football game tomorrow.
Soon, thousands of visitors will pack into Times Square to see another dazzling scene when the crystal ball drops on New Year's Eve to welcome in 2013.
