@Regranned from @nasa - Is this reddish landscape on another world or right here on Earth? .
.
.
.
.
.
.
It's here on Earth, as seen by European astronaut Paolo Nespoli (@Astro_Paolo), who shared this image saying it featured "the maze of canyons, mesas, and mounds" from Canyonlands National Park (@canyonlandsnps) in Utah. He noted that this landscape was "created by the Colorado River and the Green River." Astronauts have used hand-held cameras to photograph the Earth for more than 50 years. Beginning with the Mercury missions in the early 1960s, astronauts have taken more than 1.5 million photographs of the Earth. Today, the International Space Station (@ISS) continues the tradition of Earth observation from human-tended spacecraft. Operational since November 2000, the station is well suited for documenting Earth features as it maintains an altitude between 220-286 miles (354-460 km) above the Earth. That provides an excellent stage for observing most populated areas of the world.

احتمالا پیش خودتون فکر میکنید که این هم یکی دیگر از تصاویر ناسا از کرات دیگره ، اما باید بگم که اشتباه میکنید این منظره زیبا متعلق به زمین خودمونه! .
.
.
.
اینم یکی دیگر از تصاویر خارق العاده ی فضانوردآژانس فضایی اروپا مستقر در ایستگاه فضایی بین المللی پائولو نسپولی ( @astro_paolo ) هست.ایشون این عکسو با این مطلب منتشر کردند «هزارتویی از دره ها و تپه ها واقع در پارک ملی اوتا (@canyonlandsnps) . (اوتا یا Utah یکی از ایالت های آمریکاست).
این منظره زیبا بوسیله دو رودخانه کلرادو و رودخانه سبز ایجاد شده »
بیشتراز پنجاه سال از زمان آغاز ماموریت «مرکیوری » در سال ۱۹۶۰ فضانوردان در حال عکس برداری از زمین به وسیله دوربین های خورد بوده اند و تا کنون حدود یک و نیم میلیون عکس از زمین گرفته اند . ایستگاه فضایی نیز همانند سفینه های فضایی بدون سرنشین نیز سنت عکس برداری از زمین را ادامه میدهد .
که از سال ۲۰۰۰ عملیاتی شده.
ایستگاه فضایی در ارتفاع بین ۲۲۰ تا ۲۸۶ مایل (۳۵۴تا ۴۶۰کیلومتر ) قرار دارد که بسیار مناسب برای ثبت و ضبط جزئیات زمین است .
همچنین ایستگاه فضایی جایی عالی برای دید زدن شهرهای پرجمعیت و بزرگ زمین است.
