More images from Olympic Tower:

  • Säntis. This view is theoretically impossible under normal atmosperic conditions, but an extreme atmospheric effect of temperature inversion means that something shows up, which on comparison with an aerial view from a higher elevation, is assumed to include Säntis.
  • Grünten. The image shows a time sequence of photographs of the changing effects of refraction.
  • East. A panorama looking east. Some local cityscape features are included.
