Golden Gate Bridge Sunsets on Google Maps

Jef Poskanzer brings us his latest Google Maps creation: Golden Gate Sunsets. He created this using his GeoRSS Viewer so no programming was involved. Here is why he has created this map:

Between the 6th of September and the 4th of April each year, the setting sun can be seen right in the center of the Golden Gate from a series of viewpoints around the central bay. Between the 17th of October and the 23rd of February, for 130 days each winter, the viewpoints march up and back along the East Bay shoreline. The exact spot from which the show can be seen moves by a few hundred feet per day.
