Below and to the right of the runway at the Saint-Hubert Airport is the barely-perceivable oval shape of the Canadian Space Agency campus, which Kimbrough explained is where astronauts "go for amazing training on the [Space Station's] robotic arm," known as Canadarm2.

Kimbrough is known for sharing his views of cities and landscapes.

His other recent shares show Long Beach and Los Angeles, California; Turin, Italy; and the dunes of the Arabian desert.
