The Revel Ball Lights Up

They've  been testing for awhile now in the dead of night (or so they say) but this morning I caught a glimpse of the tricks the Revel Ball might have up its sleeve when it goes live on April 2. It was purty. Revel officials, including Mitch Gorshin, the son of Frank Gorshin of Batman Riddler fame, whose baby it is, have proclaimed it a work of art and we shall judge it as such. It's pretty cool. As cool as the sky nature produced for sunrise? Maybe not. But it's got more going for it than another red corporate logo. Here's a shot I snapped this morning from Ventnor of the ball glowing blue against that spectacular sky.
