Today's Sky Watch photo shows the view looking from Broadcarr, on the hill between Ashton and Mossley, towards Manchester City Centre. Broadcarr is close to Hartshead Pike. The photo was taken from Lane Head Road which leads towards Lees village.
The tall building, left of centre, is the 47-storey Beetham Tower, which houses the Hilton Hotel and private apartments, and is the tallest residential building in the country.
The building is 554 feet (168.9m) tall and stands at an elevation of around 100 feet (33m) above sea level, which means that the spot where the photo was taken is around 300 feet higher than the top of the building!

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!
