NASA has revealed 2020’s top pictures of Earth that were taken by astronauts on the International Space Station.
The video was posted by the NASA Johnson YouTube account.
It starts with an amazing photo of Cuba and The Bahamas as seen from space.
Other highlights include an aerial view of the river Nile when it was very flooded.
There’s also a cool shot of swirling clouds in the Sahara Desert.
In total there are 20 pictures in the video compilation and it’s hard to pick out the most impressive.
One even shows Earth and the Moon as taken from the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule that sent astronauts to the ISS late last year.
Sprawling cities also feature as well as extreme weather events.
Nasa said in a tweet posted on December 30: «The men and women who live and work on the International Space Station take thousands of photographs of their home planet every year, and we asked the folks at the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit at NASA’s Johnson Space Center for a few of their favorites from 2020.»
The ISS orbits Earth 16 times a day so it’s no wonder the astronauts on board get a chance for some great international photos.
For 20 years now the ISS has always had human inhabitants onboard.
The longest stay on the station lasted for 437 days.
