Now some random facts about the star:
1) The star was built in 1949 to kick off the Christmas season shopping.
2) Initially the star was illuminated in all white but would later change to red to indicate a traffic fatality for that day.
3) After the September 11, 2001 attacks, the star was kept in a red, white, and blue configuration for nearly six years, until April 2007.
4) On April 17, 2007, the star had to be turned off because one of the power lines had been heavily damaged by a tree. When the star was relit on April 22, 2007, officials changed the color configuration to all-white "as a symbol of hope" after the Virginia Tech massacre.
