The Bahamas From Space: An Astronaut’s-Eye View

We know how stunning the turquoise waters and white sand of The Bahamas are up close, but have you ever seen what our gemstone-colored archipelago looks like from space?

Well, here’s your chance, thanks to these extraordinary photographs by astronauts like Chris Hadfield, who can’t get enough of our islands!

Commander Hadfield, who was the first Canadian to walk in space, has been described as the most social media-savvy astronaut to leave Earth. He engaged millions of fans in the space program and showed the world the wonders of our planet from a new perspective.

However, one place kept capturing his attention—and our imagination:

Yet Hadfield wasn’t the only astronaut who was captivated by the allure of our islands. Scott Kelly, who recently spent a year aboard the International Space Station, also took plenty of photos of The Bahamas from space.

In fact, he called The Bahamas, “the most beautiful place from space.”

It only makes sense, since it’s certainly the most beautiful place on Earth!

Most of us won’t get the chance to set our eyes on The Bahamas from space, but luckily it’s an easy place to visit. Check out our latest Travel Deals and plan your out-of-this-world vacation!
