DESCRIPTION: Metal canopy with square aperture, lighting program, and reflection pool, surrounded by granite benches and landscaping
Lighting Program:
According to Pomona College, the lighting program is keyed to sunrise and sunset. The evening program begins about 10 minutes before sunset and continues for approximately 40 minutes. 
The sunrise program begins 1 hour before sunrise. 
Between lighting programs the canopy is illuminated, and a 3-minute "chime of light" occurs on the hour.
