C-U from space

Astronaut and University of Illinois graduate Mike Hopkins posted a photo of Champaign-Urbana today from space.

Hopkins is aboard the International Space Station. 

He posted the picture to his Twitter account, saying, "Hey, University of Illinois, it took a while, but I finally got a cloud free pass. Looking good!"

The State Farm Center, Memorial Stadium and the Champaign Country Club's golf course are clearly visible in the image.
