Night View of Colorado’s Front Range From Space is Far Out
As the International Space station orbits the earth, the American astronaut currently aboard has been snapping pictures of the earth like a tourist including one that shows Denver and other cities on the Front Range.
NASA Astronaut Shane Kimbrough is part of the Expedition 49-50 crew that includes Russian Cosmonauts Sergey Rhyzikov and Andrey Borisenko.

The trio rocketed into space from Kazakhstan on October 19, 2016, aboard the Soyuz MS-02 spacecraft for a four-month mission.
While they’re orbiting the earth, we get to enjoy some pictures from space including Kimbrough’s photo of Denver (in the middle), Colorado Springs (at the very bottom), Greeley-Ft.Collins and Cheyenne, Wyo. (very top) taken last Thursday (February 9).
