In honor of NASA’s Perseverance Mars Rover landing 127+ million miles away, San Francisco’s City Hall lit up red yesterday.

Every evening at sunset, over 220 state-of-the-art LED lighting fixtures illuminate City Hall’s exterior. Normally, a soft white glow shows off the play of light and shadow on the full façade and dome. Frequently, special plaza façade lighting schemes honor or celebrate events, seasons, and holidays.
