“Rache des Papstes”

The Berliner Fernsehturm was built in the GDR which tried so hard to squash religion. To the embarrassment of the GDR authorities - when the sun shines on the Fernsehturm's tiled stainless steel dome, the reflection appears in the form of a cross. Some said it was God's revenge on the  socialist state for having crosses removed from churches.
