Beijing has been consumed by this week’s airpocalypse, leaving nothing left but the tippity-top of the city’s skyscrapers.
At least that’s what a photo taken by CNN national security correspondent Jim Sciutto seems to show.
Beijing from the air as smog blankets the city. Just otherworldly – and alarming pic.twitter.com/P8oTLRFomR

Sciutto posted the incredible image to his Twitter account on Wednesday. One Twitter user happened to notice that “the buildings look like tombstones.”
An apt comparison considering that Beijing residents have suffered through one of the smoggiest weeks on record. Here’s what it looked like when the PM2.5 rolled in.
While picturesque from above, it’s not exactly a photographer’s paradise from inside that dirty air bubble.
However, it would make for the perfect setting of a new Silent Hill move.
Leaving some residents to complain about the severe damage being done to their lungs.
