International Space Station tweets photo of Miami prior to Super Bowl kick-off

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station shared a photo Sunday showing Miami Gardens from outer space ahead of Super Bowl LIV.

The photo shared on Twitter shows Miami Gardens hours before kick-off between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chief — its shoreline and the ocean clearly visible.

“Magnificent Miami! This photo, taken from the International Space Station, shows a sunny day of the Sunshine State and its beautiful beaches,” the tweet said.
