It’s no secret that Australia is pretty bloody photogenic and looks amazing from every angle, but Canadian Space Agency astronaut David Saint-Jacques may have just won the award for most incredible image of Uluru.
Saint-Jacques embarked on his first-ever mission on December of 2018, soaring to the International Space Station to conduct Canadian and international science experiments and technology demos. He’s been floating around up there ever since.
Over the June long weekend, the astronaut shared a snap of Uluru, which he captured from the International Space Station and whoa boy, it’s out-of-this-world amazing. Watch the full clip above to see the incredible shot.
“Sunrise over the sacred Uluru, a.k.a Ayres rock of Central Australia,” Saint-Jacques shared on Facebook. “I was impressed how easy it was to spot from space.”
It’s not the first time Saint-Jacques has shared happy snaps of Oz from outer space either, Tweeting this picture of central Australia earlier in the year.
The image of Uluru immediately went viral on Facebook, racking up more than 2000 likes, over 120 comments and more than 150 shares. Commenters are totally captivated by the shot.
“That’s amazing!” commented Joanne Kittle.
“Incredible picture,” wrote Fran Hughes. “Amazing how I can see this that you have seen from space.”
