We know you guys love pics from satellite views of Earth landscapes as much as you love nebulas and galaxies images, so here is the tallest building on Earth as seen from the GeoEye1 satellite.
This is the 828 metre Burj Khalifa skyscraper towers above downtown Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. The no doubt soon-to-be iconic image taken earlier this year by GeoEye 1, the highest resolution satellite in operation, opens the 2011 calendar of parent company GeoEye.
With over 160 stories, the skyscraper is the tallest structure ever built, taking the title from Taipei 101 in Xinyi District, Taipei, Taiwan.
GeoEye 1 orbits 684 kilometres above the Earth’s surface providing images exclusively for Google Earth and Google Maps applications.
