The Rocket shines bright

The Rocket on Gynn Square roundabout about 15 minutes after sunset
Today was the annual Ride the Lights event, whereby the promenade is closed to all road traffic for the evening, and cyclists are allowed to ride through a preview of the illuminations before the actual switch on date. The opportunity was taken to capture some photos of the Rocket lit up on Gynn Square roundabout just after sunset.

The illuminated advert panels below the windows on the offside of the tram were not working

The Rocket looking as if it's all set for lift-off to the Moon!
Looking north along the Promenade, with the illuminations visible on the left
A view looking towards the sea taken from in front of The Gynn public house
The Rocket looks rather strange now with its fourth fin missing from alongside the steps (shown here in a 1981 view)
