In addition to looking heavenward, NASA helps the world see the Earth in ways no one else can. On Nov. 26, 2003, astronauts on board the International Space Station took advantage of their unique vantage point to photograph the Himalayas, looking south from over the Tibetan Plateau.NASA Crew Earth Observations 'Top Ten' Photos
The troposphere ends abruptly at the tropopause, which appears in the image as the sharp boundary between the orange and blue colored atmosphere. The silvery blue noctilucent clouds extend far above the Earth's troposphere. The sliver of the setting moon is visible at upper right.

As a result, the Himalayas have become visible from 200 km (125 miles) away, consistent with the expectation if the Earth is a sphere 6371 km (3959 miles) in radius. Flat Earthers assert that the visibility of the Himalayas cannot possibly occur if Earth is a sphere as the distance is too far away.3D View of the Himalaya earthobservatory.nasa.gov
Himalaya is a Sanskrit word meaning "the Abode of Snow." Mt. Everest (8848 meters) and Mt. Makalu (8481 meters) are visible near the top center of the image. Further to the south is the Mahabharat Range, separated from the Himalayas by the "River of Gold," the Sun Kosi.The Milky Way over Snow Capped Himalayas NASA
What’s higher than the Himalayas? Although the Himalayan Mountains are the tallest on planet Earth, they don't measure up to the Milky Way. Visible above the snow capped mountains in the featured image is the arcing central band of our home galaxy. The bright spot just above the central plane is the planet Jupiter, while the brightest orange spot on the upper right is the star Antares.NASA Viz: Invisible Earth
In our photo saturated world, it’s natural to think of satellite images as snapshots from space. But most aren’t. A satellite image is created by combining measurements of the intensity of certain wavelengths of light, both visible and invisible to humans.Himalayas Visible For The First Time In 30 Years In ...
For the first time in 30 years, the Himalayas are visable to peopl in northern India. Usually the pollution hides them. COVID 19 changed that.Sunlit Peaks in the Himalayas NASA Earth Observatory
As the International Space Station (ISS) was traveling over India towards the day night terminator, an astronaut shot this photograph of Earth’s third highest summit, Kangchenjunga, and its surrounding peaks warmly lit by the setting Sun.With the Sun low in the sky, the light was passing through more atmosphere, which scatters it towards the red end of the visible spectrum.
