Wis. astronaut shares photo of state from space

Wisconsinites know their state is one filled with natural beauty, but it's always nice to get a fresh perspective on the place we call home.

American astronaut and Wisconsin native Jeff Williams provided just that Tuesday morning when he tweeted a photo of Wisconsin from more than 200 miles up:

Williams was born in Superior, Wisconsin and has been orbiting Earth on the International Space Station since March. His first trip to the ISS was in 2006.

This isn't the first time the Badger State has gotten some love from U.S. astronauts. Tim Kopra shared a great aerial photo of Milwaukee just last month.
