Image of the Clouds taken in August 2014 by astronauts on board the International Space Station (ISS). A year from space photographs of hurricanes, typhoons and meteorite craters show an astronauts-eye view of our planet from hundreds of miles above the earth. The illuminating images were taken by astronauts onboard the International Space Station (ISS) over the course of 2014.
The space-based snappers captured everything from phenomenal weather to the Northern Lights from their orbit at around 220 miles above the earth. Astronauts have lived on the ISS every day since October 2000 – and the floating home and science lab provides a unique opportunity to capture out-of-this-world photographs.
