I've live in the Tri-Valley nearly all my life. I know what the skies were like in the sixties. In the summer through early Fall, you could not see the Pleasanton hills from Livermore. And, more often than not, traveling west on Highway 50 (precursor to I580) you would not see the hills until reaching Santa Rita. This is no exaggeration.
