NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold captured this clear view of Mount Rainier National Park as the International Space Station orbited above at about 17,500 miles per hour. Arnold shared the image and a quote on April 25, to celebrate National Park Week:

“‘Doubly happy, however, is the man to whom lofty mountain tops are within reach, for the lights that shine there illumine all that lies below.’ – John Muir on Mount Rainier.”

  1. BEAUTIFUL picture of Mt. Rainier. I can see that beautiful scene everyday from my house, but would LOVE to have this view to frame. How can I go about getting one?
