Inspired by Bob Collins at the Newscut blog, I took the liberty to further notate the cities, highways and features shown in this nighttime photo of Minnesota. Enjoy!

The Twin Cities... FROM SPACE
As the space station passed over Minnesota earlier this week, a United States astronaut tweeted a photo of the lights of the Twin Cities and portions of greater Minnesota which is particularly interesting. Hey, we've all seen satellite photos but the most striking thing about this photo is how easily you can depict the various cities which flank the metro area. Also quite visible are the various highways and a handful of natural features in the good old state of Minnesota.
