The European astronaut Tom Peske, who participated in the 50th expedition to the ISS, photographed the snow-covered Dnieper River from the station. It happened back in November 2017, but a stunningly beautiful picture appeared on the Web just now.
“Winter landscapes from the ISS are simply amazing!”, The Frenchman was amazed then.
The Dnieper is the fourth longest river in the whole of Europe, making up more than 2 thousand kilometers. It is located on the territory of three countries of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, flows into the Black Sea.
Every day the orbital laboratory makes 17 complete revolutions around the Earth, and astronauts at this time produce various scientific experiments and studies. Thanks to the work of the crew members of the International Space Station, everyone can see stunning photographs of the home planet, taken from an altitude of 400 kilometers. We can observe how the Earth changes over the years due to man-made influence and natural disasters: floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and so on.
Winter is coming, and Internet users expect that the ISS astronauts will soon delight them with fresh snow-covered views of different regions of our planet.
