We were at the symphony last night and also saw this beautiful sight. I thought it was a celebration of blue Democratic victory. My partner thought it was a poignant reflection on the upcoming 30th anniversary of Jonestown and the Milk/Moscone assasinations.We were both wrong. Turns out it was part of a worldwide commemoration of World Diabetes Day. More than 800 buildings and landmark sites were bathed in blue light, including the UN, the Pyramids and Sphinx in Egypt, the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio, Niagara Falls, the Tower of London, the Sears Tower in Chicago and the Alamo in Texas.
Dear winpal: Thank you so much for the info.
It was an amazing evening last night. I was out walking in not-as-fabulous Oakland, but the sky was so clear that even through all the lights at street level, both Venus and Mars were huge and brilliant at dusk.Really something to see.
