There is no debating the fact that millions of people across the US watched the just concluded Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, but there was another pair of eyes watching from outer space – and that was NASA astronaut Scott Kelly who also threw a party aboard the International Space Station (ISS) to celebrate the occasion as he flew over California.

Kelly threw the party at 250 miles above Levi’s Stadium at the San Francisco Bay area on Sunday, but no one apparently attended his party and no one knew about his party until Super Bowl was over. "No one showed up. I would have served nachos!"

But his main joy was that he “got to see the Super Bowl in person after all!” while traveling at 15,500 mph as he flew over the Bay area, making his glimpse of the Super Bowl brief but remarkable. He even snapped photos of the Super Bowl from space as he flitted past, tweeting that “looks like a great night down there!”

Kelly just spent 317 days in space aboard the ISS where he and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Korniyenko have been studying the effects of long stay in space on human health. Staying in isolation away from friends and family in space is not easy, but Kelly has been making the best of the occasion by being active on Twitter and sharing insights into his living condition up there.

Kelly revealed he is a Houston Texas fan and would not readily comment on the outcome of Sunday’s game between the Denver Broncos and the California Panthers, but Broncos ended up winning the match with 24-10.
