On January 28th, at around 9 am GMT, Commander Scott Kelly photographed Washington, D.C. from the International Space Station. Down below, the city was fast asleep but its streetlights still shone, outlining the grid of the city in contrast to the dark Potomac River. This way-above-bird's-eye view of our nation's capital gives us a fresh perspective on our nation's capital—one that figuratively and literally transcends politics.
Taken using the barn-door method designed by fellow NASA astronaut Donald Pettit, this photograph was one of thousands Kelly shot on his year-long mission aboard ISS. His mission provided space programs with vital information that could be used toward the planning of future, longer-term missions, and gave us incredible imagery of our planet from the upper reaches of our atmosphere.
