[kl-bogel] Beautiful Planet (34 photos)

It's great that astronauts on the International Space Station (real heroes) continue to share with us photos of our beautiful planet. The privilege of watching our planet from outer space falls very lucky few. However, thanks to these photos, as if we ourselves have visited in orbit. For this we are grateful to the astronauts, NASA and the European Space Agency. So, if suddenly someone among them is reading this - thanks! After all, before we can enjoy similar views created by Hollywood studios. But these photos are real. Mother Earth is truly very beautiful ...

Beautiful Planet (34 photos)

1. Maldives
"Sunny Side of Life" - this slogan tour operators attract tourists to the Maldives. Well, from the ISS, they do look divine. It's time to order a drink with slices of fruit and an umbrella in the glass, then stretch out on a hammock and just enjoy life, watching an amazing sunset. (NASA / ESA)

2. Pacific Ocean, Hawaii
Aloha! We are approaching the Hawaiian Islands from the west. Big Island is clearly visible. Kilauea is sometimes called "the world's only volcano in the road." Now this volcano produces 250-650 thousand yards of lava a day, enough to cover the 32-kilometer two-lane highway in the day. (NASA / ESA)

The eastern coast of Spain at night, with the Balearic Sea in the form of dark spots. The island of Mallorca is visible at top left. Looking at the Barcelona night, I remember my wish list.

5. Mannam Volcano, Papua New Guinea
Mannam, or the Great Volcano, just 10 km in diameter. Mannam - stratovolcano, composed of varying layers of ashes, lava and rocks from previous eruptions. This is one of the most active volcanoes in Papua New Guinea, and sometimes it becomes the cause of death of people, including 13 deaths in December 1996 and four more in March 2007. In general, this picture looks like a great dekoritsyu to any film, for example, "Jurassic Park" or "King Kong". (NASA / ESA)

And they may have one version of ourselves. " (NASA / ESA)
