This photo is a real work of art – the sort of thing I would love to have displayed on my wall.
But there is plenty where that came from. It is one of the photo’s taken by astronaut Scott Kelly from the International Space Station. He lifted off from Kazakhstan on March 27 and is scheduled to return to Earth on March 3, 2016, after spending a total of 522 days in space, according to NASA (this is his 4th mission).

The photos here are from a series Scott took of the Sahara desert. Really beautiful works of art.

Thanks to @physicus (see That dot top right is the ISS. Oh yes it is. on Twitpic).
You have got to love this. Astronauts/Cosmonauts hard at work on the international space station (ISS/Zarya) while passing over some of New Zealand’s best wine regions. In the North island we can see the Wairarapa/Martinborough region. In the South Island the Marlborough, Nelson, and North Canterbury/Waipara regions.
The coming Saturday and Monday evenings should provide good opportunities for observing the International Space Station from the North Island of New Zealand – weather permitting.
