Arlington's first major commissioned art project, Dark Star Park's large spheres are designed to resemble fallen, extinguished stars. One section of the park contains spheres and poles with shadow-images inset in the ground. Each year on August 1, the day (in 1860) William Henry Ross acquired the land that became Rosslyn, the actual shadows align with the shadow-images at 9:32 am.
