NASA Image of the Day for 17 January 2007: A Capital City. Washington, DC as photographed from the International Space Station as it flew over us in May, 2006. Sure, it’s probably a view you can get with a few taps into Google Maps, but still, pretty amazing. And what’s that big white thing on the Mall?
