Thousands of people crowded the waterfront and connected online to watch Tuesday's 3/5 formal debut of "The Bay Lights," the massive 25,000-light display on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. The 1.8-mile long, 500-foot-tall piece — billed as the "world's largest LED light sculpture" — will glimmer nightly until 2015. The project is the brainchild of Ben Davis, chairman of the nonprofit group Illuminate the Arts. Davis admitted a fondness for San Francisco's often-overlooked bridge — which opened six months earlier than its famous sister, the Golden Gate — and said the span's 75th anniversary provided a good opportunity to do something special.
