From Sophie Weiner at AnimalNY:
Alexander Gerst, a German astronaut living aboard the International Space Station took this photo of the Gaza Strip from space and posted it to Twitter today. The tweet reads, “My saddest photo yet. From #ISS we can actually see explosions and rockets flying over #Gaza & #Israel.” Of course, some of this is normal nighttime lighting, although much of power is out in Gaza. Also: there is a claim that this is actually Israel and Jordan and merely shows city lights.
