Royal Observatory from Amazing Spider-Man Vol 4 11

Below the Royal Observatory was located the Zodiac Vault, a gateway into the Zodiac Dimension that could only be opened with the Zodiac Key. Vernon Fury and his Zodiac made their way to the Royal Observatory and performed a ritual using the Zodiac Grand Orrery to reveal the path to the vault. Spider-Man and his allies, who were pursuing Fury, attempted to stop him to no avail. Fury eventually managed to open the vault and entered in contact with the Zodiac Dimension, gaining a year worth of knoweldge of future events. As a last ditch effort to stop Fury, Spider-Man pushed him into the gateway, trapping him within the Zodiac dimension for a year.[1] A year later, Spider-Man and his allies returned to the Royal Observatory to await Fury's return. Fury initially laid waste to them after emerging from the vault, but was eventually stopped by Spider-Man.[2]
