“Uluru in the morning, this sacred site is understandably revered when you see it like this from space. Awe-inspiring!” wrote Thomas Pesquet about this spectacular shot of Uluru from space.

“The sandstone rock is known for changing colour, and from space I agree a sunrise or sunset changes its tone, glowing in the different lighting.

“The shadows in this picture made it easier to spot and helps it stand out, but the huge sandstone structure that is almost three km across is hard to miss.”
