The historic Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia, was finally wiped from the city’s skyline on Monday morning. In this clip, spectators atop the Westin Hotel's Sun Dial Restaurant prepare to see the Georgia Dome crash to the ground after an early morning implosion.

The Georgia Dome was destroyed in a scheduled <a href="" target="_blank">implosion</a> next to its replacement the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, left, on November 20 in Atlanta. The dome was not only the former home of the Atlanta Falcons but also the site of two Super Bowls, 1996 Olympics Games events and NCAA basketball tournaments among other major events.

The former home to the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons was brought down by a meticulously planned implosion. Nearly 5,000 pounds of explosives were used to take the building down in a matter of seconds, according to the Washington Post. The space where the dome was located will be utilized as a green space for parking, tailgating and community events.

The arena, one of the US’s largest domed stadiums, had played host to more than 1,400 events, including two Super Bowls and games during the 1996 Olympics.

Numerous videos can be found online, documenting the historic building saying its final, rumbling goodbye to Atlantians. However, he have to pull out one that really stood out - a family shot the implosion of the Dome from what we can only assume the same building. Just as the Dome got engulfed in dust, a kid can be heard saying “I <a href="" target="_blank">never liked that building anyway</a> ."
