Holiday Calendar: Circle of Power – GeoEye High Resolution Imagery Featured on MSNBC Photo Blog

Will future archaeologists assume this circular structure was some sort of 21st-century Stonehenge? They wouldn’t be completely wrong if they did: This is Spain’s Gemasolar power-generating array, as seen in a satellite image from the GeoEye commercial Earth-imaging venture.

A picture taken by the GeoEye-1 satellte on Nov. 4, 2010, shows the Gemasolar power-generating array in Seville, Spain. At the center of the array is a 40-story-high concrete tower, ringed by 2,650 mirrors. The mirrors focus sunlight on the tower, which stores the heat and converts it to energy.
