The Aliens have Landed

The Biodome, Montreal

At least that’s what it looks like to me. It actually started out as a velodrome for Montreal’s 1976 Olympics. It was also used for the judo competitions.

Between 1989 and 1992, renovations took place that transformed it into a nature exhibit housing exhibits of the South American rain forest, North American forest, the estuary habitat of the St. Laurence, and the Arctic and Antarctic. It is known as the Biodome. Unfortunately we never saw the exhibits as the workers were on strike. The overhead shots were taken from the tower of the Olympic Stadium.

  2. It sure looks like an alien that in landing appears to have blighted the neighborhood, i.e. those dark ominous-looking apartment buildings. Good capture!
