US Northeast Megalopolis from Space

Can you see your house from up there? A crew member of the International Space Station snapped this fantastic photo of the Atlantic coast of the United States:

Large metropolitan areas and other easily recognizable sites from the Virginia/Maryland/Washington, D.C. area spanning almost to Rhode Island are visible in the scene. Boston is just out of frame at right. Long Island and the Greater Metropolitan area of New York City are visible in the lower right quadrant. Large cities in Pennsylvania (Philadelphia and Pittsburgh) are near center.
