Bahamas Stunning From All Angles, Including 220 Miles Above

Astronaut Scott Kelly Shares Photo “Of Most Beautiful Place From Space”

Forty-six years after Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon, and Buzz Aldrin shared the first photograph from the Moon to Earth, Astronaut Scott Kelly is documenting his year in space with photos on Twitter. At the time, Buzz Aldrin’s photos was considered to be the most beautiful thing ever seen, and one of the things that stood out were The Bahamas gin clear waters. In response, UNICEF made a stamp of the photos and The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism embraced this stunning image, with a poster and tagline, “The Waters of The Bahamas Are Out of This World.”

The latest images from space from Astronaut Scott Kelly documenting his year in space on the Space Station are just as, if not more so, compelling today. Kelly is posting a dearth of images and views of varying images of the earth from space, often not immediately recognizable, and always providing followers with a unique viewpoint to our planet. The Bahamas Ministry Of Tourism was very excited to see his tweet on the 26th of April with a stunning image looking at the Earth seemingly from below, showcasing the stunning clear waters and pristine white beaches with the accompanying text, “Had first video conference with my youngest daughter today. Showed her the most beautiful place from space. #Bahamas.” The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism was not the only fan of the tweet as it was retweeted over a thousand times and favorited by over two thousand people.

Even from 220 miles away in the Space Station it is obvious that it really is better in The Bahamas. The Bahamas Ministry Of Tourism encourages Astronaut Scott Kelly, and would like to invite him and his family to discover the magic of The Islands first-hand when he returns after his year in space as personal guests.
