Crete Pictured Upside Down in Photo from Space

Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano, currently one of the crew orbiting the earth on the International Space Station (ISS), captured this magnificent photograph of the Greek island of Crete from space on Sunday.

The ISS was traveling around 420 kilometers an hour, from north to south, and this explains why Crete is seen upside down. Several other southern Aegean islands are also pictured dotting the silvery sea underneath a cloudless sky.

The glinting of the sun highlights the interaction between sea and land, wrote astronaut Parmitano on Twitter.
