California Academy of Sciences at Night- 10.21.08
NOTCOT Note: SO, jealous that linhchi (shade elaine) had a chance to get into the California Academy of Sciences! But luckily she took some gorgeous pics to share her experience with us!
I’d been waiting for the new California Academy of Sciences to open in Golden Gate Park for over a year, and when opening weekend finally rolled around late in September, I wasn’t willing to combat the crowds. Luckily the company I work for was invited to a party there (hosted by AOL) this past Monday evening, and though we didn’t get to check out the entire place, it was awesome being able to wander around the rain forest dome (I missed the planetarium show!) and get a glimpse of the other parts without enormous amounts of people, and to get a unique view of the place at night! My favorite pic (you’ll see it after the jump) is from inside the rain forest dome looking up at the ceiling & lights. I’ll definitely have to go back and check out the entire place for real. See a lot more pics after the jump!
Approaching the Academy of Sciences
My favorite pic! I felt like I was about to be abducted by aliens and the mist shooting out from time to time just added to that odd sciencey feeling.
The African center that I was really bummed about not being able to go into
The tube that goes under the water inside the rainforest dome
Just some of the cute little frogs and geckos we saw
