Astronaut Scott Kelly posted a photo on social media over the weekend of an incredibly detailed view of New York City from space. 

“My cosmonaut colleague Oleg Kononenko took this incredible photo of #NYC last night,” wrote Kelly. “Enjoy. #YearInSpace.”

The photo was taken from the International Space Station and clearly shows New York-area landmarks including Central Park, Roosevelt Island and the glowing lights of Times Square. You can even make out StuyTown.

Check out the impressive pic below to find out just how well aliens can see your neighborhood.
