ISS Astronaut Shared A Mesmerizing Picture Of Dubai From Outer Space

The International Space Station, ISS, floated over the Middle East and an astronaut, Koichi Wakata, captured a mesmerizing image of the glittering Dubai coastline from outer space.

The Palm Jumeirah is pretty clear in the picture, the trademark beacon of Dubai. Koichi tweeted, saying, “can you see the Palm Island?”

The dense golden glitter of the sleepless city contrasts the night’s blackness and shows the light and beating life sparkling within Dubai.

He also tweeted, “Just passed over Qatar. We are rooting for the Japanese national soccer team in the final tournament from the International Space Station!”

The ISS also passed over the FIFA World Cup host country Qatar and Wakata, rooting for his nation’s team, hoped that Japan would win over Croatia. Unfortunately, Croatia won against Japan in the round 16 match that took place on Monday.
