UPDATE: Apple fans, rejoice! Apple Park looks glorious in this aerial sunset tour

Construction on Apple Park, the new Apple headquarters, is nearly complete

Apple's (AAPL) massive new headquarters, officially dubbed "Apple Park" -- and unofficially dubbed "Spaceship" -- is nearing completion. And as evidenced by this sunset drone video tour, it's looking glorious:

The video is the latest in a series of drone videos from Matthew Roberts (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/footage-of-apples-new-spaceship-includes-glimpse-of-the-steve-jobs-theater-2017-08-17) showing the stages of the 175-acre "Apple Park" campus's construction.

The drone video includes a flight over the Visitor Center, as well as the 1,000-seat Steve Jobs Theater, which hosted its first ever event earlier this month for the new iPhone X product launch (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/everything-apple-announced-at-its-iphone-event-2017-09-12).

The visitor center (http://appleinsider.com/articles/17/09/12/apple-parks-new-108m-visitor-center-spares-no-expense-to-dazzle-guests), which cost more than $80 million, includes a retail store, cafe and rooftop viewing deck for the public to catch a glimpse of what's happening at the Spaceship across the street. That building will open to the public later this year.

The video also shows more landscaping since the last update; Apple is expected to plant about 9,000 trees on the campus by the time the project is complete. The campus will also include a pond, walking trails and a fitness center. The campus will eventually host about 12,000 employees.
