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."
The Rocky mountains are a step too high – even for the clouds to cross https://t.co/1SAD0nPZRj The low level and mid level clouds that come into sight are forming a stratus that gives the look of smooth and featureless sheets of thick cloud coverage. Their altitudes do not match the height of mountain range.
According to the National Weather Science, the low-level stratus clouds are formed at altitudes less than 1.2 miles (2 km). And the mid-level altostratus clouds are formed at altitudes up until 3.8 miles (6 km) above the Earth.
Thomas Pesquet came at the space station in November. He loves to take pictures of Earth from space and shares them on social media quite frequently.Comment
