In this incredible photo we see spirals of lights bursting from Earth. The photo was taken from the International Space Station by astronaut Barry Wilmore, the commander of Expedition 42 and one of six astronauts currently on board. Expedition 42 has been on the ISS since September 2014 and will return to Earth in March. Of the photo Wilmore adds, “Spain looks like it is floating away from Africa”.

The image was shared earlier today to the International Space Station’s official Facebook page.
