NASA picture shows Cincinnati from space

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - We know what Cincinnati looks like from space thanks to an astronaut on board the International Space Station.

NASA recently released this image of the day where you can see the Ohio River that's that brown ribbon going down the center of the screen.

The picture taken in the spring of last year probably after some spring showers.

You can also see downtown and the two stadiums.

However, astronauts say cities are harder to see because they appear gray and have low contrast features.

Take a closer look at the image from space here.
