Interesting Photo of the Day: Lunar Landmark

The city of Seattle, Washington has recently enjoyed the limelight, thanks to the Seattle Seahawks’ 2014 Superbowl victory. But since long before the Seahawks came around, Seattle has been recognized for its stately space-era landmark: the Space Needle:

Built for the 1962 World’s Fair (just seven years before the first manned moon landing), the Space Needle’s sleek, mid-century-modern lines harken back to an era when people thought we’d be traveling in flying cars by the 2000s (just like The Jetsons). With a glowing full moon behind it, this photograph of the Space Needle—captured by Hai Nguyen—retains that futuristic feel even 50+ years later.
