The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which to burn.—Bertrand Russell

We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered. —Tom Stoppard, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

The Bay Lights Project

On Tuesday, March 5th, 2013 at 8:30 p.m. PST the largest light sculpture in the world will be illuminated for the first time. 25,000 LED lights are attached to the vertical suspender cables of the San Francisco—Oakland Bay Bridge. At 1.8 miles wide and 500 feet tall the computer-controlled light show will be eight times the size of the Eiffel Tower’s 100th Anniversary light show.

You can click here to watch the festivities online starting at 7:30 p.m. PST. It will run everyday from dusk to 2 a.m. for the next two years. Watch the video below for a preview of the show.
