Iberian Peninsula and North Africa at Night (NASA, International Space Station, 07/26/14)

One of the Expedition 40 crew members aboard the International Space Station recorded this early evening photo showing part of the Cygnus cargo carrier built by Orbital Sciences Corp. as well as almost the entire Iberian Peninsula (Spain, Portugal and Andorra) on July 26, 2014. Part of northern Africa is visible at lower right, and the Strait of Gibraltar can be seen right of center frame.
