The US space agency NASA published a picture in Instagram with a view of the western part of Europe at night on Christmas Eve, made from the International Space Station (ISS).
"A nighttime view of Western Europe is captured by crew members aboard the International Space Station. England is visible in the top right of the frame, Paris appearing as the bright city near the middle of the image and views of Belgium and the Netherlands occupying the middle-right of frame." the description says.
The image was provided by Thomas Pesquet, who wrote 'A strange feeling. Looking at Earth and thinking what friends and family are doing.'
