Ain Dubai, the world's largest and tallest observation wheel, is all set to swing into motion on Thursday, October 21.

And on the eve of its opening, the magnificent structure has been captured on camera from space by KhalifaSat.

The image of the newest attraction in town, which extends to 250m in the sky, was taken by the first Emirati-made satellite and shared by the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Center (MBRSC).

Ain Dubai is the latest landmark to be hemmed into the growing skyline of Dubai and could soon feature among the top attractions in the city.
