Silent Sunday: Dubai from space

These photos popped into my in-box today. Taken by Dubai’s very own ‘eye in the sky’, they mark the second anniversary of the launch of DubaiSat-2, the emirate’s second earth observation satellite. Love how you can see the World islands, two miles off the mainland, the Palm, and, if you peer very closely at the photo above, the 828-metres-high Burj Khalifa.

DubaiSat-2 was launched into space from the Yasny Launch Base in Russia in 2013.
