At the time of its completion just ahead of the 1962 World’s Fair, the Space Needle was the tallest structure not just in Seattle, Washington, but west of the Mississippi River. In today’s standards, some first-time visitors to Seattle are thrown off by the space age landmark’s relatively modest height of just 605 feet. Visitors who assume that it dominates the Seattle skyline are a little let down when they discover it's the city's sixth tallest structure. #spaceneedle #seattle #washington  #seattlelife #travel #explore #wanderlust #viewfromabove #birdseyeview #geoeye1 #satelliteimage #satelliteimagery #vantagepoint #digitalglobe

Clarke Quay is a historical riverside quay in Singapore, now home to a labyrinth of restaurants, bars, stores and recreation outlets. The flower-shaped roofs pictured in this satellite image show the willowy umbrella-like structures known as the “Angels.” These structures were designed by the architect to provide a climate controlled environment for patrons of the quay. #clarkequay #singapore #visitsingapore #travel #explore #wanderlust #viewfromabove #birdseyeview #worldview3 #satelliteimage #satelliteimagery #vantagepoint #digitalglobe

This week we’re taking you on a trip to Singapore! Gardens by the Bay is a large, colorful, futuristic park in the bay area of Singapore. The iconic Supertree structures provide an impressive skywalk over the gardens. The two Cooled Conservatories at the Gardens by the Bay are the world’s largest columnless greenhouses, designed with glass that sits on a steel grid which acts like an eggshell. 🥚

Built in 126 AD as a temple for all the Roman gods, the Pantheon served as a Roman Catholic Church since the 7th century. The temple, located in Rome, Italy, is topped with a concrete dome with a central opening: the oculus. To this day, the Pantheon’s famous dome is still the largest unreinforced concrete dome in the world. #pantheon #rome #roma #italy #italia #oculus #dome #architecture #travel #explore #wanderlust #viewfromabove #birdseyeview #worldview3 #satelliteimage #satelliteimagery #vantagepoint #digitalglobe

Built in the 17th century, St. Paul’s Cathedral is one of London’s most famous and most recognizable sights. The Cathedral was saved by firefighters when it was bombed during World War II.

Located atop Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, the Capitol building is the meeting place of the United States Congress. The cast iron dome of the Capitol is not the first dome to sit above the building, but the second. The initial dome was replaced after the Capitol was expanded in the 1850s to accommodate the growing number of legislators from newly admitted states. The expansion more than doubled the length of the Capitol, but also dwarfed the original, timber-framed dome. #uscapitol #capitol #washgintondc #dc #washington #capitolhill #uscapitolbuilding #uscapitoldome #dome #architecture #travel #explore #wanderlust #viewfromabove #birdseyeview #worldview2 #satelliteimage #satelliteimagery #vantagepoint #digitalglobe

Dome structures have been used throughout history by several different civilizations. This week we’ll share some of our favorite satellite images of famous domes, like the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, Italy. Started in 1296 in the Gothic style and completed in 1436, the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore is Florence’s beautiful cathedral and symbol of the city. The basilica is one of Italy’s largest churches, and until the modern era, the famous dome was the largest in the world. It remains the largest brick dome ever constructed. #santamariadelfiore #basilica #florence #firenze #italy #italia #tuscany #toscana #cathedral #dome #bellaitalia #travel #explore #wanderlust #viewfromabove #birdseyeview #worldview2 #satelliteimage #satelliteimagery #vantagepoint #digitalglobe

A salt lake in Yuncheng, China is known for its bright changing colors due to algal blooms and rapidly breeding insects. The phenomenon is caused by the algae species Dunaliella salina, which NASA has reported appears green in marine environments but can turn red if exposed to conditions of high salinity and light intensity. Yuncheng’s Xiechi Lake was formed around 500 million years ago and has been harvested for salt by the local community for 4,000 years. It is the world’s 3rd largest sodium sulfate inland lake. #saltlake #yuncheng #china #science #lake #travel #explore #wanderlust #viewfromabove #birdseyeview #worldview2 #satelliteimage #satelliteimagery #vantagepoint #digitalglobe
