The Best View of the Inauguration

Check out this amazing pic of Washington DC from International Space Station (ISS) astronaut Chris Hadfield. Whether you're in the huge crowd expecting to attend the presidential inauguration festivities, at home watching on TV, or on another planet (greetings), I'm sure you agree that the view is amazing!

If you look at the trail of lights on the center-left you can make out the parade route. As  I posted yesterday, this is where NASA astronauts, engineers, and scientists will be showing off models of the Curiosity Rover and Orion capsule .
