The 2021 US Open is underway and this is what its tennis stadium looks like from space
The US Open Tennis Championship kicked off Monday, August 30 at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City – and the stadium can be viewed from space.
Maxar Technologies released a satellite view of the facilities on Monday to celebrate the championship, which is one of the oldest tennis tournaments in the world. The US Open will see the world’s best players come to Flushing, Queens, to participate in the annual event. Chronologically, this is the fourth and final “Grand Slam” tournament of the year, and the Flushing Meadows Park site is one of the largest public tennis courts in the world.
