For years, the Bay Bridge in California, which connects San Francisco to Oakland, has been overshadowed by its bigger brother, the Golden Gate Bridge.
But now tourists are likely to flock to the Bay Bridge in much the same way.
Tasty Tech Eye Candy: Amsterdam Light Festival
A light installation created by artist Leo Villareal in 2013 that was originally designed to illuminate the bridge for two years just got the go-ahead to stay permanently.
Thanks to $4 million raised by the nonprofit organization Illuminate the Arts, the bridge lights, which were turned off a year ago, got flipped back on this past weekend.
The Bay Lights sculpture transforms the bridge into a dazzling spectacle and because it has more than 25,000 LEDs, it's technically the largest light sculpture in the world.

The strings of LEDs don't shine statically, either. They swim up and down the supporting cables, creating a mesmerizing display that mimics the traffic patterns underneath.
A state-of-the-art system used advanced algorithms to create the patterns and wireless technology to monitor and maintain the lights.
To see the installation during its original debut, watch the video below.
