Next Tuesday The Bay Lights will create a lighting sculpture that is 1.8 miles wide and 500 feet high.  The lighting celebration was inspired by the Bay Bridge 75th anniversary and will use 25,000 white individually programmed LED lights that are capable of creating dazzling displays across the bridge’s west span.

When I was in San Francisco earlier this month I had a great view of the bridge and it appeared the lights were already programmed, but according to the Bay Lights website, thebaylights.org, the program starts next Tuesday, March 5th and will shine from dusk to midnight for two years. Check out this video which explains the program in more detail.

  1. I can’t wait for this. I’m considering getting dinner reservations at one of the Embarcadero restaurants just to watch the lights.
