Astronaut Kjell Lindgren shared an epic photo of Minneapolis that was captured from the International Space Station during its flight Tuesday.
Lindgren, who completed his medical residency at Hennepin County Medical Center, shared the photo of Minneapolis with the note: "Looking great Minneapolis! And a warm hello to my friends and colleages @HennepinMedical!"
The image, which clearly shows the new Vikings stadium near the center (along with TCF Bank Stadium, top left, and Target Field, bottom), also spotlights the Mississippi River and several of Minneapolis' premier lakes, including Lake of the Isles, Calhoun and Harriet, on the right side.
The International Space Station orbits at an altitude of 205 to 270 miles and offers an unparralleled perspective on the world.
Lindgren was born in Taiwan and also spent time growing up in the Midwest and England. He worked for three years at Hennepin County Medical Center during a residency in emergency medicine, eventually landing a spot as chief resident in 2005.
Minneapolis isn't the only city to get its star turn. Last month, Lindgren -- known as @astro_kjell on Twitter, shared this image of New York City's Central Park.
