Breathtaking NASA Pictures Show Tri-Cities Surprise From Outer Space
Check Out Some Amazing Pictures Of The Tri-Cities From Outer Space
Tri-Cities looks a whole lot different from outer space and NASA astronaut and hometown hero Kayla Barron has snapped some amazing photos of the Tri-Cities from high above the Earth.
Barron is a graduate of Richland High School and is currently high above the planet. She is currently serving as a mission specialist of the NASA SpaceX Crew-3 mission to the ISS, which launched on November 10, 2021
NASA's Kayla Barron Posted Amazing Pictures From Outer Space
As a Richland Washington native, she's waited over five months for the Tri-Cities to come into view from the International Space Station.
Barron is obviously proud of her hometown as she snapped some incredible pictures from the ISS of the Tri-Cities from outer space.
The breathtaking photos were posted on her Facebook page and you can really see how amazing it is to look down from space at your hometown.
You can see the Columbia River and the Tri-Cities from space and it's pretty amazing.
Here is what Kayla posted about trying to spot the Tri-Cities from outer space:
It took me five months in space, but I was finally able to snap some photos of my hometown, Richland, WA. It can be hard to spot and is often been covered by clouds, but I was able to follow the Columbia River all the way from the coast to the Tri-Cities.

I think the biggest surprise that I spotted in the photos is that it really puts into perspective what a little planet in the middle of the universe we live in. It's humbling to see these photos and also how amazing Kayla must feel as she looks down on our little spot in the world.
Elon Musk can fly to space for a bit but Richland's Kayla Barron gets to enjoy that view every morning for the last six months. It truly is amazing and thanks to Kayla Barron for sharing this amazing slice our your life with us.
Kayla Barron is set to return to Earth at the end of the month and I like others can't wait to hear about her mission and her adventure.
