Out of this world: celebrating the Year of Zayed from space

The Year of Zayed has made such a big impression that it can even be admired from space.

An enormous logo marking the 12-month celebration of the UAE's Founding Father, Sheikh Zayed, can be clearly seen on Google Earth.

The striking landmark, located close to Zabeel Park in Dubai, is already a massive attraction for visitors to the 150 metre-high Dubai Frame.

A whole series of events have been held in honour of The Year of Zayed, which is marking the 100th anniversary of the birth of the late ruler.

Now it is proving an online hit, too, after being captured on satellite.
