The elevator at night

The grain elevator is lit at night, and is quite noticeable for several miles. There is a walkway at the top that has lights (do people walk up there at night?), and for at least the Christmas season, it has a blue star near the top.

The star faces north and cannot be seen well unless you are on the north side.

Happy Winter Solstice, the  shortest day and the longest night of the year. Days will now begin to get longer, though it will not be noticeable for a few weeks.
