We just couldn't resist sharing this video from Eyewitness @nickalodieon! It appears that Pluto just didn't want to say goodbye to fans earlier this week at @disneyland. The @disney host was trying to "encourage" him to head backstage, but the jovial pup spent a few extra minutes clowning around. That's why we love Pluto!

Maybe you've driven through the wind farm on the San Gorgonio Mountain Pass in the San Bernardino Mountains, but did you know that you can tour the area and learn about sustainable energy in the Coachella Valley? @windmilltours offers a 2-hour tour, where you not only go behind the gates and get up close to a few of the 4,000 windmills, but you learn about the area’s solar energy and natural gas facilities. Tickets are $49 for adults, $47 for seniors and $24 for kids 8-17. Thanks to Eyewitness @paul_paul_ for this great silhouette shot. Share your incredible captures with #abc7eyewitness!

You might have seen this sculpture in Downtown L.A., but do you know its history? The six-story, 60-ton Triforium was designed by artist Joseph Young. It was installed in Fletcher-Bowron Square near Los Angeles City Hall in 1975. Its original design includes 1,494 multicolored glass cubes that glow in synchrony to music from a 79-note glass bell carillon, making it the largest musical instrument of its kind on Earth! Unfortunately, at the time there wasn’t much community support, critics denounced the project and the technology fizzled. The @triforiumproject is raising money to restore the sculpture, using new, LED lighting and updated computer technology. They hope to bring Young’s vision back to life someday! If you’d like to help, go to triforium.la. Thanks to Eyewitness @smaddielope for the pic. Share your public art faves with #abc7eyewitness!

The world's largest aerial firefighting tanker in the world, the Global SuperTanker is the largest firefighting tanker in the world. The converted 747 passenger jet is retrofitted with massive tanks capable of dumping nearly 20,000 gallons of fire retardant or water in 12 seconds. For now, it sits idle on a Victorville tarmac. The @u.s.forestservice Interagency Air Tanker Board is testing the aircraft's tanking system, and approval is pending. The U.S. Forest Service has also capped tanker capacity it will utilize on fires at 5,000 gallons. The SuperTanker carries four times that amount. In order to use the full capacity in the U.S. and Canada, more approvals will be required.

Do you love all things @mcdonalds? Then a stop at the Original McDonald's Museum at 1398 North E Street in San Bernardino is a must! This is the original site of McDonald's, which opened as the Airdrome in 1940 and converted to the first McDonald's in 1948. The unofficial museum is owned by Juan Pollo founder Albert Okura, and the site also serves as the Juan Pollo corporate headquarters. The museum is filled with McDonald's toys, signs, old Play Place equipment, fiberglass statues and other promotional materials and memorabilia. Thanks to Eyewitness @rickyromanski for the photo!

Monday, Omar and Osiris Elhosseiny returned to Methodist Hospital in Arcadia to celebrate a milestone - their one-year wedding anniversary. Less than a month before their wedding last year, Omar was rushed to the hospital unable to move. His team of doctors quickly diagnosed him with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a rare bacterial disease that causes paralysis. For 19 days, Omar was in a medically induced coma. His future was uncertain but Osiris never wavered. She married him while he was still in the hospital. Omar has since made major strides, including getting the use of his arms. @abc7darsha takes us to today's anniversary celebration on Eyewitness News at 4pm on ABC7 and abc7.com/live.

@malibucreekstatepark is the home of the outdoor set of TV's M*A*S*H! The show was a cultural phenomenon from 1972-1983, with 251 episodes and over 100 Emmy nominations. In 2007, state park officials authorized a partial restoration of the set, and if you visit today you can see a recreation of the iconic signpost, as well as a military ambulance left behind by the studio and informational kiosks with photos from the series. For more info and for a map of the location, click the link in their bio. Thanks to @kate_by_the_sea for this great shot! Share your hiking finds with #abc7eyewitness!
