Buffalo from Space

Buffalo and the Niagara Region from space…
Thanks to Buffalo Rising reader GW for passing along the following image of Buffalo at night, taken from the International Space Station. 
Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield took the photo and posted it on his Twitter account with the description “Niagara Falls in the night, and all the surrounding towns from St Catharines ON to Buffalo NY”. 
Seen in the image is the Niagara Region (on left) Buffalo/WNY (on right) from space.
Chris Hadfield @Cmdr_Hadfield:
