New Photos Of Montreal From Space By NASA Astronaut

NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough has shared new photos of Montreal from space on Twitter.

The three pics, showing downtown Montreal and the nearby boroughs, the Montréal-Trudeau Airport and the Montréal Saint-Hubert Longueuil Airport, offer a mesmerizing, unobstructed and unbroken view of the city and surrounding area.

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.
