Astronaut Shares View Of Rocky Mountains From Space And It’s Incredible!

Yes, that’s our planet Earth. As seen from International Space Station (ISS), that’s a view of the Rocky Mountains (or the Rockies) captured by Thomas Pesquet, French Astronaut of the European Space Agency. He took this amazing picture from 250 miles (400 km) above the Earth. 

The Rocky Mountains are snow-capped huge mountain ranges that lie in the western North America. They are around 2.7 miles (4.4 km) tall and stretch greater than 3000 miles (4800 km)  from the northernmost part of British Columbia to New Mexico.

Pesquet shared the picture of the Rocky Mountains from space on Twitter with this caption, 

"The Rocky Mountains are a step too high – even for the clouds to cross."
