French Astronaut Thomas Pesquet shared yesterday a stunning shot of Beirut taken from the International Space Station. Pesquet has never been to Beirut yet but none of us Lebanese have seen Beirut the way he just did 🙂

If you look at the high-res shot, you can zoom in and easily spot Raouche, Zaitunay Bay, Horsh Beirut, Beirut Port and the Camille Chamoun Sporting City among other things.

The Cupola is an ESA-built observatory module of the International Space Station (ISS)
