Seen from space

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield tweeted a photograph of Reno from space that has since gone viral.

“I’m fairly certain this is Reno, Nevada,” he wrote on his Twitter page. “The biggest little city in the world.”

The University of Nevada, Reno confirmed that the photograph was of Reno. The image includes much of the region, with Reno brightly lit in the center of the image and dark, rural land surrounding the city.
