Astronaut shares bird's-eye view of downtown Baltimore

Cockeysville native and NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman shared a bird's-eye view of downtown Baltimore with his Twitter followers Monday, the latest in a string of interesting perspectives he has shared.

"Nice to fly over my hometown #Baltimore. Camden yards clearly visible. Go @Orioles," he said via his Twitter handle, @Astro_Reid, with a picture he took from aboard the International Space Station.

The tweet came just days after another space station flyover of Baltimore during which Wiseman took a photo of severe thunderstorms moving through the region.

"We just flew directly over Baltimore and the T-storms looked rough!" he tweeted.

Wiseman launched for the space station in May and is spending six months orbiting Earth.

Because it has been daytime while the space station has passed over Baltimore recently, it hasn't been visible, of course. It isn't expected to fly overhead at nighttime until early next month.

Stay tuned to Wiseman's Twitter feed and the Maryland weather blog for more of his views from space.
