I would have thought there would be more light in the midwest than is shown in this photo. I am not surprised by the eastern states and the west coast. There is a lot of farm acreage in Middle America.

At first glance, this picture looked like a tangle of sea monsters. But it's actually Venice photographed by astronaut Thomas Pesquet. Click to enlarge. Venice sure looks different from the International Space Station than it does from a cruise ship.

Here's an unusual view of Egypt's Aswan Dam. It's the view from the International Space Station. Astronaut Thomas Pesquet says that "with a good camera lens, we can see the water spill when the valves are open".

I've been intrigued and delighted by Juno's amazing views of Jupiter. But here's a photo Juno took of Earth before setting off for the outer Solar System. Beautiful.

Taken on July 24th by NASA's AIM satellite, this is a satellite image of the North Pole - in fact, the whole Arctic region - complete with electric-blue noctilucent clouds. There must have been some great sightings from the ground.

Spaceweather.com explains what these clouds are:
Quote:
Noctilucent clouds are, essentially, clouds of frosted meteor smoke. They form when wisps of summertime water vapor rise toward the top of Earth's atmosphere. Water molecules stick to the microscopic debris of disintegrated meteoroids, assembling themselves into tiny crystals of ice that glow beautifully in sunlight at the edge of space.

Abstract painting? Microscope image? You've realized that isn't right from the name of this thread. It's an orbital view (courtesty of Roscosmos) of Brukkaros Mountain, an extinct volcano in the Karas region of Namibia.

The Nile river at night was photographed by ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli on board the International Space Station. (When you get to the Flickr page, worth clicking to enlarge.)
