In this photo it looks as if the Space Needle observation tower is a rocket climbing after a smoky liftoff.
The 605 ft tall Space Needle is one of the Pacific Northwest most well-known landmarks and an internationally recognized symbol of Seattle, Washington.
The Space Needle rises prominently over Seattle - above the rest of the skyscrapers and looking out towards Mount Rainier in the distance.
SkyCity, a large restaurant that features Pacific Northwest cuisine is located in the "hovering disk" of the tower. It rotates 360 degrees in exactly forty-seven minutes.
