This is an odd picture. It looks like an animal, with a head rearing, neck and shoulders, and body. But it's actually the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. Thomas Pesquet, the ESA astronaut who took the picture, said:
The Cape of Good Hope, aptly named, one of Africa's most southern points! Crossing it with a space station is certainly not comparable to doing so sailing.
