Nasa astronaut takes photo of Palm Island from space

Dubai: Every now and then, its easy to forget how busy astronauts are in space, watching over Planet Earth.

Nasa astronaut Shane Kimbrough is currently part of the Expedition 49/50 mission, along with five other crew members from the US and Russia, who recently flew over the UAE during their journey in space. 

Hello Dubai! The Palm Islands look amazing from @ISS.

Kimbrough’s latest mission departed in October 2016 and according to Nasa, has been scheduled to conclude in March, 2017. 

The retired United States Army officer captured the image from the International Space Station (ISS), accompanied with the caption: “Hello Dubai! The Palm Islands look amazing from @ISS.”

This is not the first photo of the UAE that has been taken from space.

In April 2016, European Space Agency astronaut Tim Peake took photos of Dubai from a space station on Sunday when a spacecraft came into view.

Peake, a former British Army Air Corps officer, took another shot that was then photobombed by SpaceX’s Dragon capsule.
