Expedition 46 flight engineer Tim Peake, who became the first ever Briton to have carried out a spacewalk outside the International Space Station (ISS), shared a stunning nighttime image of the Mediterranean taken 200 miles above the Earth.

Major Peake of the European Space Agency (ESA) shared this stunning nighttime photograph with his social media followers on January 25, 2016, writing, "Beautiful night pass over Italy, Alps and Mediterranean."

Earlier, the astronaut also shared a series of aurora photos with his fans taken from the space station.

Peake, who is on his first mission, has been on the orbiting station for a little more than a month, performing experiments and representing the UK in space.
