How Dubai Looks From Space (NASA Photos)

A NASA astronaut posted beautiful images of Dubai from the International Space Station, including a photo that shows the man-made World Islands.

The World, an artificial archipelago of small islands built in the waters of the Persian Gulf, looks like a world map from space. Not only that, the palm-shaped structures in the emirate's coastline can also be viewed in the pictures.

Take a look:

Reports said the images posted on the @NASA_Astronauts Twitter account were shared by @DXBMediaOffice (Dubai Media Office) to its followers.

The NASA astronaut also captured images of Mount St. Helens in Washington, and South Florida, both in the United States, and the Bahamas in the Atlantic Ocean.

Amazing sights!
