A View of Sochi from Space

This past Monday, an astronaut aboard the International Space Station captured a photograph of Sochi, Russia, at night. The circle of yellow lights designate the Sochi Olympics Park. The white circle within it is Fisht Stadium, with the Olympic flame showing up as a yellow dot. I believe the blue lights are from the Bolshoy Ice Dome, the Olympic hockey venue. -via With Leather
