Disney Concert Hall (home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic) is the building structure immediately to the right. Other landmarks are Well Fargo Center I (behind Concert Hall) and Deutsche Bank and Deloitte & Touche (left (East) side of Grand). The red time-lapse streaks on the left are of a bus passing by.

Feb 21, 2006 across the street (Grand Ave) from the Deloitte & Touche building. Just visible are Orion and Sirius in the constellations Orion and Canis Major, respectively. The partially-visible
building on the far right is SBC Communications.
More time-lapse stills of Orion and Sirius are here and here.
The contrast in the movie clips has been adjusted in order to make the star field
too far from the US Bank Tower (which is not visible in this sequence), here
is another movie of the downtown Los Angeles nightscape. This time-lapse was
captured February 8, 2006, near the corner of Figueroa and 8th street. Sample
