What Denver looks like to an astronaut

NEXT WITH KYLE CLARK - An astronaut at the International Space Station showed what Denver looks like from more than 200 miles above the Earth. 

Astronaut Paolo Nespoli tweeted out a photo on Sunday, Nov. 19 saying,

"In the High Plains, just east of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, the Mile-High city...Hello Denver!" 

Next viewer Roger asked,

"After spending several hours trying to figure out which way north is on the photo that Paoli Nespoli shot of Denver from the space station, several of us are at a loss…we would like to know which way was north so we can figure out where downtown Denver is." 

If we turn the photo of the front range clockwise, here's where Downtown Denver is located:

Here's Casa Bonita:

And the Tech Center: 

The Italian astronaut will be at the station for five months to conduct experiments. 

He along with astronauts Sergei and Randy spent Thanksgiving at the ISS, eating mashed potatoes, turkey, cornbread dressing, and candied yams.
