Istanbul from International Space Station. December 10, 2017

In the photo above, taken by Randy “Komrade” Bresnik, the commander of the Expedition 53 (the 53rd expedition to the International Space Station) on December 10, we see Istanbul, the only intercontinental city on Earth and the biggest city of Turkey, the Black Sea, the Bosphorus, the Marmara Sea and Prince Islands (south is up).

The Bosphorus is a strait that forms part of the boundary between Europe and Asia. The Princes’ Islands are a cluster of 9 car-free islands southeast of Istanbul in the Sea of Marmara.
