The clouds covered the September 11th skies through much of the day and into the sunset. Only in the morning hours of September 12th did the clouds clear allowing the Tribute in Light to fade into the morning skies. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the United States of America.
Photographs of the Tribute in Light taken on the night of September 10th into the early morning hours of September 11th after the lights were turned off.
The top photo was taken when the Tribute in Light was shining bright and the second photo was taken when the Tribute in Light was turned off after the first photo.
The planned day for the all night light memorial is September 11.

Took some snaps of the Bull tonight. It is amazing how much of a tourist destination the Bull is. Top two images are long exposures to get the traffic as it whizzing by the Charging Bull.
Charging Bull, which is sometimes referred to as the Wall Street Bull or the Bowling Green Bull, is a 3,200-kilogram (7,100 lb) bronze sculpture by Arturo Di Modica that stands in Bowling Green Park near Wall Street in Manhattan, New York City. Standing 11 feet (3.4 m) tall and measuring 16 feet (4.9 m) long, the oversize sculpture depicts a bull, the symbol of aggressive financial optimism and prosperity, leaning back on its haunches and with its head lowered as if ready to charge. The sculpture is both a popular tourist destination which draws thousands of people a day, as well as “one of the most iconic images of New York” and a “Wall Street icon” symbolizing “Wall Street” and the Financial District.
