Hawaii Island view taken by Samantha Cristoforetti aboard the ISS. Volcanoes are clearly seen from the ISS traveling around Earths orbit at 4.76 miles per second (7.66 km/s).

Samantha Cristoforetti, a European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut and Captain in the Italian Air Force of Italian nationality, is currently a Flight Engineer and living on the ISS from November 2014-May 2015.

And suddenly as we flew over the Pacific… the island of #Hawaii with its volcanoes!
