French astronaut shares photo of Istanbul from space

French astronaut Thomas Pesquet has posted a photo showing Istanbul from space on his official social media accounts, Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency has reported.

Pesquet, an astronaut from the European Space Agency (ESA), took the photo from the International Space Station on May 17. 

“Istanbul has a strategic position and controls the access to the Black Sea. Noticeably, the area teems with activity both on sea and land,” he added in a description under the photo.
