Earth Observations: Astronauts search for cities from ISS’ Cupola

What do volcanoes, islands, dry lake beds, and big cities look like from space? Join International Space Station Expedition 38 crew members Mike Hopkins and Rick Mastracchio as they chitchat about Earth’s cities and countries from ISS’ celebrated Cupola, the best spot on ISS to watch Earth go by.

This NASA/Inside the ISS video was filmed in February 2014 and has since been annotated so that it’s easy for us to spot the landmarks, too.
