Russian astronaut, Sergey Ryazanskiy, recently shared some amazing images of the Grand Mosque in Mecca taken from space, and they literally look out of this world.
He captioned the post: “The holiest place in the Islamic world. #Mecca is beautiful both day and night. Impossible to confuse it with any other city in the world, even from space.” Sergey has also previously captured images from a number of other Arab locations, including Dubai, Egypt, Baghdad, Tunis, Saudi Arabia, Cairo, and Yemen.
