Frozen Stadium For the Super Bowl XLVIII Seen From Space [Image]

This is the current frosty state of New Jersey’s Metlife Stadium, the site for the Super Bowl XLVIII captured by NASA’s Earth Observing-1 satellite.

The Super Bowl has always been held either in a warm environment or indoors, but for the first time in 47 years, Super Bowl XLVII is being held in an outdoor stadium in a northern, cold-weather environment.

Mike Carlowicz, chief editor of NASA’s Earth Observatory wrote:

“The segmented brown parcels around the stadium are marshy “meadowlands.” Sitting along the west bank of the Hackensack River about five miles west of New York City, the Meadowlands have a long and environmentally difficult history.”
