The torch of the Statue of Liberty contains webcams, so virtual visitors from around the world can enjoy views from the “Torchcam” on the website of the US National Park Service. The original copper torch was replaced during restoration from 1984-86. The flame of the new torch is covered in 24k gold leaf and reflects the sun’s rays in daytime and is illuminated by 16 floodlights at night. Photo courtesy of the National Park Service.
