Another round of messages appeared over the city today, and Angelenos captured it on Twitter.
If you looked up this afternoon you would have seen more unifying messages filling the L.A. skies. The giant skywriting was seen right across the city with residents in DTLA, Hollywood, Burbank, Santa Monica, and Irvine having reported seeing them.
Skytypers—the family-run business behind it all— has taken it upon themselves to inspire a little positivity amongst locals. The uplifting gesture gave everyone a reason to pop their heads outside and share a moment together.
At the beginning of April, the skywriters wrote messages like “We will get through this” and “Stay home.” Almost a month later and they’re back again with new encouraging words like “Thank you grocery and healthcare workers,” “❤️ First responders” and “Stay strong LA.” According to their website, each letter is higher than the Empire State Building in New York City (US) and each message length is between 5-7 miles—which is why they were spotted by thousands of residents.
If you missed it, don’t worry, Twitter users covered it from every angle.
According to this Facebook post, you can send your own message over the next 2 weeks by sending it to 1-888-SKYTYPE. This may explain the wordy messages seen in the latest round.
