Patagonia from space

NASA has long had a large database with photographs taken from space by astronauts. Wonderful photos with "out of this world" perspectives. From time to time photos of the glaciers and mountains of the southern Andes appear, and last month, during mission 47 of the International Space Station, something happened and they published more photos than ever before, gifting us extraordinary views of our beloved Patagonia. After reviewing more than 2000 I share my favorites. - Camilo Rada
