Scott Kelly has shared a number of images of Earth from space since the beginning of his International Space Station Mission. Recently, the ISS astronaut captured the landscape of Australian land from 400 kilometres above Earth and shared them on his official Twitter account.

The spectacular images represent Australia's unrecognisable natural terrain and landscape rather than its vegetation. The colour-enhanced images were shot from a Nikon D4 camera .

Earlier in September, Kelly shared a spectacular image of the Great Exuma Island in the Bahamas and a lone aircraft flying over it. The picture showcased the beautiful island cays and tidal channels between them.

Kelly and Mikhail Kornienko, a Russian astronaut, are on a one-year mission aboard the ISS. Since the beginning of the mission, Kelly has been instrumental in sharing views of Earth from space. Oct. 13 marked the completion of his 200-day mission.
