It's not every day the International Space Station passes above northern Minnesota on a crystal clear morning. But thanks to the account "ISSAboveYou," we can treat ourselves to a stunning few moments of video when it does.
Around 9:22 a.m. Monday, the ISS captured South Dakota, eastward through Mille Lacs, Duluth, the North Shore and Lake Superior.
ISSAboveYou shared a short clip of the event to Twitter, but provided a longer, high-quality version on YouTube. It's taken from about 260 miles up.
Watch it below:
There's also a distinct white patch along the North Shore that we think is the Reserve Mining Company Holding Pond, where mining waste was dumped after a landmark environmental case that began in the 1970s.
