Oak Ridge Christmas lights seen from space
The Christmas lights of a private East Tennessee residence can be seen from space. NASA astronaut Ana Estrada spied the blaze of lights from her post aboard the International Space Station yesterday. Estrada was forced to put on sunglasses to prevent her retinas from becoming burnt out husks. "At first we naturally assumed the bright glow was from radioactive Oak Ridge residents themselves," said Estrada. "But on further investigation we discovered it was just an excessive amount of Christmas lights. The poor neighbors down there must have sunburns all the time." The Arkansas Ave. exhibition is one of several man-made East Tennessee objects that have been seen from the International Space Station. NASA astronauts have also spotted Turkey Creek and a Stephen A. Burroughs billboard from space.
