Good morning beautiful New Zealand.

This is you from space.

As Kiwis wound down from another summer's day, Twitter space enthusiast Ignazio Magnani was sharing a photo looking from 400km above the Earth.

The photo was taken from the International Space Station as it passed over New Zealand. It is not clear when.


Magnani had earlier tweeted about the station's planned orbit over New Zealand.

"The @Space_Station is visible to the nakedeye at 10:24 pm
everywhere in NZ."

It's not the first time our land has caught Magnani's eye.

A day earlier he tweeted an image of the Canterbury plains and its ribbons of braided rivers.
