Also, "Solstice Sun Crack" is just a great phrase.

More then likely, the solstice doesn't match up to the alley-way until the 3rd day. I seriously doubt the people who built those two buildings took into consideration that on the exact solstice day, that the sun would appear between them.

Just a co-winky-dink that it matches up on the 3rd day of summer.

I thought this was going to be about that weird trend of anus sunburning that numerous celebrities somehow got tricked into doing.

Old Exploratorium? They moved it from the Palace of Fine Arts?

I'm upset.

I loved that place when I lived in SF. I took my kids there to see the first pics from Viking on Mars.

Get off my lawn, adjust my onions on my belt, why did it have to move? That huge old warehouse was an awesome place to go in SF.

It's in a different huge warehouse now. In 2013, they moved the Exploratorium across the city to Pier 15. Being on the Embarcadero in downtown SF made it more accessible to visitors, plus the Palace of Fine Arts was old as f*ck.

According to an old news article from back during the move, the pier building could be more easily renovated to be environmentally friendly, with tons of solar panels a more efficient HVAC system:
