This Is The Best View In The Universe Of The 2014 Sochi Olympics
By: Erin Ruberry
Whether you've landed front row seats in the stadiums of Sochi or you're watching from the comfort of home on a fancy new 4K TV, it's pretty clear that NASA astronauts have the universe's best view of the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
In a dramatic photo tweeted by the Johnson Space Center, astronauts living on the International Space Station shared a one-of-a-kind view of Sochi's "coastal cluster." Clearly seen in the image are Fisht Olympic Stadium, the Olympic flame and even the NBC Today show broadcast center.
Earlier in February, Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata tweeted another stunning scene above Russia: his view of an aurora.
