Being an astronaut himself, French aerospace engineer Thomas Pesquet has a knack for aviation, and he also has a fondness for sharing photos on twitter.
So, in order to show his love of aviation, Pesquet decided to capture incredible photos of dozens of airports from an extremely high point of 250 miles up on the International Space Station.
The European Space Agency astronaut documented absolutely stunning images of runways all around the world, jumping from Japan to Germany to England. Pesquet also captured an odd location in Australia which he commented as a ‘secret military base’.
Here are some of the alluring images of the airports from space:
