Here's a photo passing over downtown San Francisco...

Buzzing downtown SFI snapped this shot as we climbed back up and over the city from our aborted first landing.

If I've got my bearings, the ribbon at lower left is Market Street, the large lit area to the right of it is Yerba Buena Gardens atop the underground portions of Moscone Center, the black area above is the Bay, and the ribbon across it is of course the Bay Bridge. Across the Bay at the top is East Bay, probably Oakland with Berkeley to the south (right). The Embarcadero would start roughly at the east end of Market and go north (left), and Fisherman's Wharf is out of frame at left. The Golden Gate Bridge would be out of frame to the lower left, heading north to Mill Valley, Muir Woods, Marin and Sonoma Counties, and on to northern California.
