This was the first time anything of this magnitude and complexity has been attempted on the iconic building.
Thirty-three floors served as the canvas for the project, which was created by Oscar-winning director and Oceanic Preservation Society founder Louie Psihoyos, in collaboration with artist Travis Threlkel of Obscura Digital, Oscar-nominated composer J. Ralph, the Discovery Channel, Vulcan Productions, the Li Ka-Shing Foundation, and Empire State Realty Trust.
Psihoyos and Ralph worked together on the Oscar-nominated documentary "The Cove," and are working together on a new documentary called "Racing Extinction" - one of the reasons they've created the light show.
Tech Insider joined a group watching the historic spectacle from a nearby roof. Check out a selection of amazing images from the night.
