Astronaut shares view of Cleveland, Chicago from space

CHICAGO — A stunning photo from above shows the two World Series cities shining brightly.

Former astronaut Terry Virts tweeted the photo Thursday showing the view of Cleveland and Chicago from outer space.

“What an awesome #WorldSeries this year. #Cleveland and #Chicago looked so close to each other from space,” Virts wrote.

After losing the first game, the Cubs evened the series in Game 2 on Wednesday with a 5-1 victory at Cleveland’s Progressive Field.

Game 3 is Friday night in Chicago when Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks takes on Josh Tomlin. It will be the first time in 71 years that Chicago hosts a World Series game at Wrigley Field.

The game will air on FOX31 beginning at 6 p.m.
