The International Space Station has just released some incredible images taken 255 miles above the UAE.
The images were taken as the Station was above Saudi Arabia, about to cross the Arabian Gulf. The images themselves were taken by a crewmember of the Expedition 59.
Despite being hundreds of miles away, the images show an impressive level of detail to the World Islands, Palm Jumeriah and Palm Jebel Ali, three of the artificial islands created in Dubai.
