Colors of Earth: ISS astronaut captures stunning ‘rainbow’ hues from space (PHOTOS)

Colors of Earth: ISS astronaut captures stunning ‘rainbow’ hues from space (PHOTOS)

NASA astronaut Scott Kelly is once again showing all of us here on Earth just how spectacular the view of our planet is from the International Space Station.

Kelly and the Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Korniyenko are spending a year in orbit, as part of a special experiment on long-term effects of zero gravity.

The US astronaut has been making ground-dwellers envious with his posts and pictures, accompanied with the hashtag #‎YearInSpace‬, for the past 11 months.

With less than two weeks before his mission is due to end, Kelly is making the most of the time he has left, showing us just how spectacularly colorful Earth looks from above in these latest photos, tweeted under the theme #ColorsOfEarth

Colors of Earth. Blue waters. Green sea. Yellow desert. Orange sands. Red and purple Terra Australis. Snow white. #YearInSpace

Kelly also captured some impressive shots of Storm Jonas last month, as the winter storm paralyzed much of the East Coast of the United States.

Kelly and Korniyenko are preparing to return to earth on March 1, after spending an incredible 340 days in space.
