NASA Image of the Day for 17 January 2007: A Capital City. Washington, DC as photographed from the International Space Station as it flew over us in May, 2006. Sure, it’s probably a view you can get with a few taps into Google Maps, but still, pretty amazing. And what’s that big white thing on the Mall?

(View it at full resolution without labels.)

More NASA images in the gallery.

    Visitors who like maps, and satellite imagery, might also be interested in Microsoft’s new maps.live.com, and in particular the bird’s eye view. Here’s an example of the Washington Monument.
