this kick-ass veterans day memorial is only fully visible on veterans day.
At the Anthem Veterans Memorial in Anthem, Arizona the sun adds an awesome touch to Veterans Day. Along with five pillars that represent the branches of the armed forces, there is a sun calendar that marks November 11th in a special way each year.

At precisely 11:11 a.m. on Veterans Day, the shadows of the Memorial pillars will align perfectly to cast one, long shadow across the circle of pavers. At the exact same time, the sunlight projecting through the elliptical openings in the pillars will pour through onto the mosaic at the foot of the pillars. The sunlight cast through the elliptical openings will become a circle that will perfectly illuminate the mosaic of the Great Seal of the United States.
