“Looking for an out-of-this world photo op? Come to Nassau Bay (opens in new tab), where this incredible astronaut was installed today in front of the McDonald’s located at 1320 E. NASA Parkway!” city officials wrote on the Facebook page (opens in new tab) for the Houston suburb on Monday (July 18).
