CHICAGO, IL (WNEM) -

If you've ever wanted to see Lake Michigan from outer space, now's your chance. 

Scott Kelly, an American astronaut, tweeted the photo of Chicago and Lake Michigan late Wednesday night.

The image shows the bright lights of the Windy City, as well as the southern part of Lake Michigan and the west side of the Lower Peninsula.

The photo also appears to show the northern lights phenomenon, also called aurora borealis.
