Incredibly clear image of Egypt's pyramids captured from space

NASA astronaut captures the clearest picture in history of the Egyptian pyramids from space

Published: Updated:

NASA astronaut Terry Virts has captured a surprisingly clear picture of the Egyptian pyramids from space.

Virts returned to earth on Thursday, after residing in the International Space Station above earth for over six months.

The astronaut was able to capture the stunning image on his way back.

He tweeted the picture along with this caption: “It took me until my last day in space to get a good picture of these!"

In past years, many astronauts have tried to capture images of the Egyptian pyramids from space, but have not been entirely successful.

“Virts' effort is notable because you don't have to play ‘Where's Waldo?’ to locate the pyramids in the image,” said CNET online.
