The Worst Seat in the House

American astronaut Scott Kelly tweeted out a picture of Lambeau Field taken from an unusual vantage point: the International Space Station.

Wow. A fantastic look at the stadium, nestled right in the middle of its neighborhood:

It's also an unusual view because we're used to looking at photos that correspond with our "North=Up" map orientation. Downtown Green Bay has an unusual layout in which the streets are aligned not north-south but angled to run parallel with and perpendicular to the Fox River.

Here's the photo rotated to comport with our customary map view:

I guess I hadn't really thought it was possible to give us a unique perspective on a place so widely-photographed as Lambeau Field, but Commander Kelly has gone to great lengths to do just that.
