NASA astronaut and Syracuse native Jeanette Epps has captured a stunning view of the Finger Lakes region from the International Space Station. Epps posted the photo on social media with the caption, “Hello Syracuse and the Finger Lakes region!”

The image shows Syracuse, the Finger Lakes, Rochester, Lake Ontario, and a large part of northern New York State. Epps is part of the NASA SpaceX Crew-8 Mission.

Epps and her team, including NASA astronauts Matthew Dominick and Michael Barratt and Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexander Grebenkin, are conducting over 200 scientific experiments to advance human space exploration and benefit life on Earth.
