Watch: The view of pyramids in Egypt from space

The photos were taken by Terry Virts the NASA astronaut that came back home to Earth from nearly 6 years of staying on the International Space Station. He managed to take the photos of ancient buildings in Egypt just before his left off.

An astronaut took incredibly distinct pictures of pyramids in Egypt.

Virts captioned these pictures in Tweeter, saying that it took him a long time to take these pictures.

I got these pictures on my last day in space… The Egyptian pyramids have always been intangible and thanks to these photos one doesn’t have to play ‘Hide and Seek’ with the pyramids on the picture

– wrote Virts.

Of course, this isn’t the first photo of Egyptian pyramids taken from space as earlier the astronaut of the European Space Agency Samantha Cristoforetti took a photo of this area as well. But one has to spend some time, finding the pyramids on the photo that are like dark and small triangles on the center of the photo. Such photos rather show the astronaut’s’ view on Earth.

The ISS is spinning around Earth with nearly 5 miles. per second and so it’s quite a trouble to take a clear photo of Earth’s objects, but Terry managed to accomplish this just fine.
