Astronaut Reid Wiseman tweeted a photo showing clear skies over Sao Paulo, one of the 2014 World Cup host cities, on Thursday. The photo was taken from the International Space Station.

The astronauts on the ISS will be watching the World Cup, according to NASA, and there may be a little friendly competition between American astronauts Wiseman and Steve Swanson and German astronaut Alexander Gerst when the U.S. and Germany play each other on June 26.

Wiseman made social media history last week, when he posted the first Vine from space.
