Bernal Hill Stars in the Most Epic Display of Giants Pride the World Has Ever Seen

Holy schmokes!  While things were going badly for the Giants last night, Daniel Leu, our favorite Bernal-watcher on Potrero Hill, noticed that we looked rather stunning during the sunset.

While the San Francisco Giants were battling the Kansas City Royals, the sky over Bernal Heights had its own spectacular show.

We may have lost the game, but it can now be said Bernal Hill put on the most epic display of orange-and-black Giants Pride the world has ever seen.

Sunset Timelapse from Bernal Hill Is a Preview of Tonight’s Coming Attractions

It’s going to be beautiful in Bernal Heights today — a warm and clear allocation from our limited annual ration of summer-like days.

During a similar day earlier in the week, Jamie Fausto created a gorgeous time-lapse video of the sunset, as seen from the north-facing vantage point that looks straight up South Van Ness Avenue. It’s awesome.

Enjoy Jamie’s video in full-screen mode, and if you want to experience the real thing for yourself, be advised that sunset will happen tonight at 6:49 pm.

PRO TIP: Bring a cocktail.

It was warm last night, with a full moon, no wind, and not a cloud in the sky. In other words, classic earthquake weather, as Neighbor and Rockstar Matt Nathanson recently taught Bernalwood’s Cub Reporter.

There were no earthquakes last night, thankfully. But Bernal Hill is always a magical place on nights like last night — a warm island of darkness in an ocean of city lights.

So, as is our custom, your Bernalwood editor headed up Bernal Hill last night to take some snapshots, including the ones shown above.

Here are a few more. Enjoy this weather while is lasts, because July will be here soon enough:

UPDATE: Looks like I wasn’t the only one up on the hill last night with a camera. Neighbor Boris had the moonrise covered as well:

Rainbow Alert! Rainbow Alert! Rainbow Alert!

The Bernalwood Rainbow Situation Control Facility is tracking a Category Four rainbow event that was captured moments ago by Neighbor Kendall’s 11 year-old daughter.

Initial calculations suggest the rainbow may have touched down in the Financial District. Motorists in the area are advised to drive with caution, as pedestrians may be euphoric and disoriented.
