Astronaut tweets nighttime image of Colorado Front Range

Friday, February 10th, 2017 6:12am MDT

Only a select few have the privilege of viewing our planet from space so those of us more grounded live vicariously through the images they send back. Astronaut Shane Kimbrough gave us a look at a lit up Front Range from Colorado Springs to Cheyenne in an image he tweeted out.

All the major population centers are clearly visible.  The nighttime lights of Colorado Springs, Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, Cheyenne and even Fort Morgan out on the plains are all visible.  The Denver / Boulder office of the National Weather Service tweeted out a copy of the image labeled with the cities to provide some context.
