This British Astronaut Shows Us What Madinah Looks Like from Space

The British astronaut Tim Peake is on board the International Space Station and tweeted a photo of Madinah, Saudia Arabia, which is an important place to Muslims worldwide.

You can see the Masjid An-Nabawi on the photo, which is the second mosque that was built in the history of Islam. Today it’s one of the largest mosques in the world.


Anyone who wants to download the pictures in high resolution can do so on Tim Peake’s Flickr account. Thanks Tim Peake, for showing us Madinah from this unique perspective!
