I first noticed it shining over my building on Capitol Hill. It was obviously coming from downtown somewhere, but where? The last time I saw one of these was as a kid back in Texas; a long bike ride led me to the “old” bowling alley. It was hardly worth the effort.
But tonight, a fussy baby that is best soothed to sleep in the backseat of the car gave me a reason to seek out the source of this beacon.
From Melrose, right above the highway, it seemed clear that Seattle Center hosted the light itself.
A quick ride down the hill brought me to the Pacific Science Center.
And lastly, a trip up to Kerry Park, to enjoy the addition to the skyline.
Unfortunately, the baby in the backseat prevented me from seeking out the actual source. But with the number of cars pulling up around the Science Center, I’m sure the story will come out shortly (a quick visit to the Center’s website provided no information).
