A native of Michigan aboard the International Space Station is sending a little love to the Mitten, sharing an image of what the iconic Mackinac Bridge looks like from space.
"The Mackinac Bridge looks cold and beautiful from our observation point 250 miles away!" NASA astronaut and Lake Orion native Andrew J. "Drew" Feustel tweeted on Friday.

At the end of March, Feustel, NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold and cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, boarded a Russian spacecraft Soyuz MS-08 and were launched for the space station.
Feustel will be on board for about five months, participating in hundreds of scientific projects and technology demonstrations.
He has been sharing many photos from inside the space station at his Twitter account
His previous missions include the final trip to the Hubble Space Telescope service in 2009 and the mission to deliver supplies to the space station in 2011.
Selected as an astronaut in 2000, Feustel said that one of his greatest joys was seeing the Great Lakes from space during his first mission in 2009.
Next stop: our journey into space! The launch on March 21 was simply amazing. Thanks to everyone for following us! pic.twitter.com/onN9XVyY9n
