Imagine you had a window looking over our world. What pictures would you take and what sights would you see? Thanks to the astronauts onboard the International Space Station we can see the beauty of our Earth from the unique position of space. This is a view the majority of us will never experience! So I decided to hunt down the top 10 photos taken of the Earth from the International Space Station. Hang onto your seats as we start the countdown…..
10 – The Moon
There is only one word for this photo and that word is “Wow!” High above the clouds we can see our satellite, the Moon. It looks almost surreal, as if it’s floating in a sea of blue and white. The Moon is approximately 384,400km from us with twelve astronauts having walked on the moon between 1969 and 1972. They were part of the six Apollo missions which each landed two astronauts to walk on the moon’s surface. Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin were the first, and Eugene Cernan and Harrison H. “Jack” Schmitt were the last.
9 – Great Barrier Reef
