Sweet Home (Huntsville) Alabama


Huntsville from 250 miles up via NASA’s photo of the day today:

From the caption:

Huntsville, Alabama From Space

The ISS SERVIR Environmental Research and Visualization System or ISERV – a camera aboard the International Space Station – captures an image of her hometown. ISERV was designed and built at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

 If you look real close at about 10:30 on the image, you can see the Saturn V standing up at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center. It has always served well as my landmark  when flying home. At the center of the map you can make out the Propst Arena at the Von Braun Center, the center being named after my favorite ex-Nazi, Wernher von Braun.
