More and more photos are seen now in the interior of BD; espacially in the first 30 floors (?) there are many lights from the interior.
BTW, i noticed those ecterior lights in the above floors in your photo Desert Diver; those are temporary?

I don't know if anyone posted this before but in the movie HOME (a nature film/ slow motion version of planet earth) there is a shot from the Burj it's quite nice and shows it's enormous height very good. (there's also a time-laps of the construction of the pals island.)
