NASA released an amazing image of New York City that its astronauts captured from outer space.

According to the space agency, a member of Expedition 35 aboard the International Space Station took this photograph of the city’s metropolitan area March 23.

The space station orbits the Earth, and the crew member was able to capture the 400-millimeter image at night.

The photo shows Manhattan glowing nearly completely amber, ringed by New Jersey, Brooklyn and Queens.

As NASA pointed out, Central Park is just to the left of the center of the frame.
