The Sunsphere

Wednesday, 15th June 2005 by

This is the Sunsphere in the 1982 World’s Fair Park, Knoxville, Tennessee. It’s a 266 foot high structure, topped with a 74 foot sphere made of bronze-coated reflective glass.

The Sunsphere was featured in the Simpson’s once (Nelson accidentally toppled it), and there’s even a “religion” based around the tower, known as the ‘Church of The Giant Golden Microphone‘.
