The bridge generated its own fog, no matter how clear and sunny the day. Most of the fog rose to engulf the bridge, while some of the fog settled down onto the bay water.

The fog was generated by forcing water out through microscopic jets. The microscopic water particles behaved like fog.

A view from the bridge, wherein the fog fled over the bay water and slowly evaporated.

A sign near the bridge described how it was created: "A microscopic pin in each nozzle atomizes the water into billions of ultra-fine fog droplets."

The Fog Bridge created a drama that harkened back to San Francisco's pre-industrial days, when a sea fog would engulf the entire city in a pea-soup thick fog.
