This is what New Orleans looks like from space

Courtesy of American astronaut Reid Wiseman on the International Space Station, we have this majestic view of New Orleans from space. Though New Orleans East and Lakeview are missing, we get a great view of Audubon Park, the CBD, Mid-City, the Fairgrounds and part of City Park. (Side note: Anyone else think the Superdome looks like a pimple?)

Wiseman tweeted that he used an 800mm lens on his camera (he didn't say the brand, but here's what they typically look like. Spoiler: they're huge) and has been taking pictures of different cities all week. Here's hoping he shares a higher-resolution picture one day so people can zoom in and try and see their houses.

Here's the original tweet:
