For July 4th, we shared out Top 10 Secrets of the Statue of Liberty but there are so many fun facts and photographs about Lady Liberty’s torch alone we’ve decided to share them here.

Although the torch has been closed since 1916 (more on that later in this piece), the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, in partnership with Earth Cam, provides live views of the torch and down onto the harbor. The website offers a “hall of fame: so you can check out snapshots going back in time. You can see the torch in all weather – clear skies (like above), rain, daytime, evening.
