Picture of the Day: Barcelona from Space
If you love seeing our beautiful planet from space you gotta follow astronaut Scott Kelly on Twitter or Facebook. His daily stream of photos from the ISS continually delight those of us planted firmly on terra firma.
Here we see the amazing city of Barcelona, the capital of the ‘autonomous community’ of Catalonia, Spain. At 1.6 million people, it’s the country’s most populous city after Madrid and the largest metropolis on the Mediterranean Sea. In this aerial you can really see the extensive grid layout found in much of the city.
Kelly, who arrived on the ISS in March, is spending an entire year in space.
