NOAA-20 captured this incredible nighttime scene overnight. Along with the fiery Aurora Borealis north of the Great Lakes, note the lightning streaks over the ocean and the moonlit storm near Minneapolis. Uniquely revealed via VIIRS Day/Night Band.

Amazing how you can see the shadows of the clouds hitting the Earth there just above OKC and Tulsa. Very cool.

Disgusting to see these parking lots on both sides of Hennepin. Kind of embarrassing. Not a soul in sight.

Disgusting, really? This is in front of a school and church.
I am so tired of the overboard disdain of any parking downtown.

Is Mplsuptown really against cars parking downtown? Not so sure. But dislike for surface parking lots fronting the busiest street and heart of the entertainment district in downtown Minneapolis is completely understandable.

Yes disgusting. I don't find that choice of wording to be overboard in anyway other than your use of it. Wow talk about drama. In your case that would be Uberboard.

It's wasted space in what should be the most exciting, vibrant part of our downtown. How it's the year 2019 and we still have crumbling parking lots fronting our premier entertainment street is bewildering to me, frankly.

I will say I’m far more ok with the st Thomas lot then the one on the other side of Hennepin ave or the one a block away on Hawthorne. That being said I am shocked these lots are still around in the heart of the business and theater district

That whole block is owned by First Baptist Church. Not St. Thomas. That parking lot will never go away unless the church is struggling and needs the money (which they probably don't since they are profiting from weekday parking fees), or someone offers to replace the free Sunday church parking with an underground ramp and tower above. The church is paying only about $100,000 annually in taxes on the two parcels that make up the lot, so they are making a killing with parking.

Both those parking lots have been there for at least 30 years. The church could do so much better and work out a deal, in a new building, to make sure they get free parking when they need it.

I absolutely love this cascading wall of our downtown towers in this shot!
