‘Dubai shines almost as bright as the stars up here,’ says Emirati astronaut Neyadi
“Dubai shines almost as bright as the stars up here.” With these words, Sultan Al Neyadi, the Emirati astronaut, shared the breathtaking beauty of the Emirate of Dubai in a stunning image that he took with his lens from the International Station, as it glitters at night, and its features appear remarkably.
Neyadi shared image on Twitter.
Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, shared Neyadi’s post and said, “An awe-inspiring photograph of Dubai taken by Emirati astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi from the
@Space_Station paints a picture of the nation's extraordinary achievements both on Earth and beyond.”
Earlier Al Neyadi published a number of photos he took from space of various landmarks and regions in the country, including Umm Ghafa in Al Ain, and others.
Al-Neyadi is carrying out the "Zayed Ambition" mission aboard the International Station, in the longest mission of Arab astronauts in space, which lasts 6 months, during which he will conduct many scientific experiments.
