Can You Identify This One of a Kind Michigan Landmark?
With a view from a satellite high above, can you identify this Michigan landmark?
Your first guess is that it's a stadium of some kind and you'd be right. But what is it? Ford Field? The old Silverdome?
You'll have to set your sights a little further north. Okay a lot further. You'll looking at the Superior Dome on the campus of Northern Michigan University in Marquette along the shores of Lake Superior.
The dome is not only an Upper Peninsula landmark, but a world record holder as the largest wooden dome on earth.
The Dome is made up of 871 beams of Douglas Fir and the wood that composes the dome could stretch over 108 miles of stacked end-to-end - a distance about equal to Marquette to Whitefish Point. The Superior Dome is the home of the NMU Wildcat football team.
