HELLO SOCHI, FROM THE ISS WITH LOVE

Below is an excerpt from NASA Goddard’s Flickr post on this photo. In my opinion some of these photos from space are just humbling in their ability to make you feel VERY small.
On February 10, 2014; one of the Expedition 38 crew members aboard the International Space Station downlinked this vertical 600mm night view of Sochi, Russia, which clearly shows the site of the 2014 Winter Olympics while they are just a few days under way. Fisht Stadium where the Opening Ceremonies were held on Feb. 7 is easily recognizable as the bright circular structure. Sochi is a city in Krasnodar Krai, Russia, located on the Black Sea coast near the border between Georgia/Abkhazia and Russia. It has an area of 1,353 square miles or 3,505 square kilometers.
Below I have compiled a list of links to current, recent and upcoming astronauts social media accounts as well as a few NASA Flickr pages for you to follow or check out from time to time.
Also; here’s my reference guide that I created a while back with EVERYTHING you need to see the ISS overhead: https://danspace77.com/iss-tracking/
