Yes, I remember that. Also, the dome was supposed to change colour to simulate different weather conditions (sunny, stormy, etc) but it didn't work for very long so was plain grey for most of its existence!

I saw it as a sunny day and as a pink sunset, and that's about it!

I remember it had lighting effects, but couldn't say if it actually reflected the weather conditions at the time.

It was in the roof, near the entrance to BHS. I think it has been mentioned on another Bond Street thread too.
