Views of SF's skyline

A deep blue sky blessed San Francisco's beautiful sky today, where stunts were being performed by the Blue Angels, US Navy's flying stunt team. My cellphone camera missed the stunt jets, but I managed to snap some skyline views from my deck -- one of the small benefits of staying in a buildings full of freaks:

The skyline. Not clearly viewable, but the Bank of America building is in view. Panning left, this is what we get:

The dome in the middle is the church in Noe Valley. Does anyone know what it is called? It sits on a hill that blocks the view between the Fisherman's Wharf (aka Wharf) and the deck. If I panned the camera further left, I can view just a small frame of the top of the Golden Gate bridge, the most beautiful bridge on this planet.
I pan the camera 180 degrees, and this is the view I get:

The photo above points toward South of Market (SOMA) and Potrero Hill, and Bay Bridge. A cruise ship was in sight, but the camera couldn't grab it.
When the weather is good, it's a great view to get up to. What makes it better? Having hot chai in hand. I love that stuff!
But I certainly need to invest in a better digital camera....
