NEW YORK–  It’s been 15 years. Fifteen years since our world changed forever.  As the 15th anniversary of 9/11 gets closer, a man captured a beautiful photo of light beaming off One World Trade Center.

Ben Sturner, who calls himself an amateur photographer, tweeted the photo on Thursday.

As the 15th anniversary of #9/11 approaches, an incredible ray of sunlight beams off Freedom Tower this AM.

He also shared another photo which he said was taken at the same time last year of a rainbow that looks like it’s coming out of the World Trade Center.
