The island of Cyprus off the southern coast of Turkey, with the Taurus Mountains prominent along the coastline. This perspective allows you to see the faintly visible Aegean Sea and mountains of Bulgaria in the distance just before the Earth horizon or “limb”. #SpaceStation4all pic.twitter.com/sFP7DF41ue
