Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo as Seen From the International Space Station: US astronaut Reid Wiseman captures an image of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo at night as the International Space Station orbits the Earth. Sao Paulo is the farthest cluster of lights on the right side and Rio de Janeiro is closer to the middle of the picture. There are three World Cup 2014 stadium cities in one picture: Arena de Sao Paulo, Estadio Mineirao (Belo Horizonte), and Estadio Do Maracana (Rio de Janeiro). [NASA/Reid Wiseman]

I love the tie-in to the World Cup, but that is also just an extraordinarily beautiful picture.
