Viðey Island, Reykjavik, Iceland
2008-10-09 to 2008-10-09
8pm every night

On 9 Oct 2008, John Lennon’s birthday, Yoko Ono asks the people of Iceland to join her and many others across the rest of the world in praying for peace and stability. 
At 8pm, as IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is illuminated on the island of Viðey, she asks everyone to join together and let the power of light and prayer become a collective expression of the desire for peace and harmony on our planet. 
Dear Friends, 

Please join me not only in remembering John on October 9th but also in spreading the message of peace. This is something that was so important to John – the fact that we could all work together for the positive good of our planet. He would have loved how we are all mobilizing ourselves in thought and in action. 
It’s time for action and the action is peace! 

with love, yoko

Visitors can reach Viðey Island, the location of the tower, on ferries from Reykjavik’s Skarfabakki pier, which depart every day at 20:00. Another light show that tourists in Iceland may get the chance to enjoy from October to March is the Northern Lights, which is sometimes visible on clear starry nights when the temperature is below zero degrees Celsius.
