Cape Verde photographed from the International Space Station
The photo taken from the International Space Station above Cape Verde is a stunning image that captures the beauty of our planet and the majesty of space. The photo clearly shows the Cape Verde Islands, with their white beaches and crystal clear waters, surrounded by the blue ocean. But the photo is not only an aesthetic marvel, but also a testament to the extraordinary technology that allows us to observe our world from a unique perspective.
The International Space Station orbits the Earth every 92 minutes at a speed of 28,000 km/h, offering a spectacular view of our planet. LIVE here
For visitors to Cape Verde, this means they have the chance to see the ISS pass through the island’s skies with some regularity. Astronomy enthusiasts can time their trip to coincide with ISS passes and enjoy the spectacle of our artificial satellite moving across the stars.
For astronomy enthusiasts, Cape Verde also offers the opportunity to participate in a stargazing excursion in the desert. This unique experience allows you to admire the stars in a clear, light-pollution-free night sky, away from city lights. With the help of expert guides, participants can learn to recognize constellations and use telescopes to observe planets and galaxies.
