An astronaut aboard the International Space Station (ISS), in space, took an impressive photograph of Mexico that has gone viral.

According to NASA, with a short focus camera he was able to capture almost the entire territory of Mexico in a single shot.

This is NASA’s Twitter post:

What can be seen in the image?

  • Most of the mountain ranges.
  • The coastal areas of Mexico.
  • Various active volcanoes.

These are some examples and are indicated in the image: Popocatépetl, Colima and Pico de Orizaba.

  • The different climatic zones.

On the south coast facing the Gulf of Mexico, the climate is tropical and humid. The forests and coastal plains appear with a slight shade of green. Inland, clouds normally form around mountains, and it is common for them to envelop high volcanic peaks.

The lighter-hued brown terrain inland is primarily the desert that stretches north across the U.S.-Mexico border.
