If you're scared of heights, then just the sight of the following images will probably make you look away. These are the amazing shots taken at the new set of glass balconies, recently opened for public viewing, at the Sears Tower in Chicago.

Suspended 103 stories (1,353 feet) in the air, "The Ledge" consists of transparent walls and ceilings, that visitors say is like floating in the sky.

The glass floor apparently can withstand five tons, but is surprisingly just an inch and a half thick.
