A birds-eye view


One of the six astronauts currently on board the International Space Station has unveiled a series of stunning photographs that show the long shadows created by dense cloud formations

Astronaut, Alexander Gerst – who spends much of his free time photographing the world beneath him through a small spaceship window – gives us a special look at what him and his fellow space travellers see while they're up in outer space.

The beautiful series of pictures, depict the shadows made from cloud formations, with some that even stretch for thousands of miles across the Earth's surface and due to its large size, normally can't be seen.
