New Pic of an Old Stadium Astronaut Tweets Space Shot of Soldier Field

School bleachers

Astronaut Scott Kelly has been in space since March on a year-long mission gathering data aboard the International Space Station for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos). Yesterday he decided to get involved in the first Sunday of football athletics, like many Americans were doing back home. Instead of watching from the couch though, Kelly snapped a picture of Soldier Field, the Chicago Bears stadium, from his cosmic perspective, according to local news affiliate WGNtv.com.

“My new hobby! Get a #SundayNFLStadiumPicFromSpace,” Kelly Tweeted out with the accompanying photo. “First up- #SoldierField, #Chicago #NFLGameDay #NFL #YearInSpace.”

By the sounds of it
