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

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

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
