International Space Station captures Washington, D.C. from space for inauguration

Coinciding with Inauguration weekend, the International Space Station has been flying over Washington, D.C., grabbing stunning imagery in the process - by night and by day. These wonderful views were made possible by perfectly clear skies. Thank you mother nature!


(Chris Hadfield - Washington, D.C. Saturday night, January 19, 2013 as viewed from the International Space Station. See big. ) 

 
The above image was posted to Twitter earlier today by Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield. His description: “Washington D.C. on Saturday night of the Inaugural Weekend. You can even follow the parade route.”
