About that Header Image of San Francisco Bay

The image at the top is from the webcam of the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California. It sits high in the Berkeley Hills

Today’s view is spectacularly clear, revealing details like Sutro Tower

The LHS webcam page also has a very cool time lapse of the previous 24 hours.
