Hidden in there is Mount Everest, which the astronaut asked everyone to try to spot.

Of course, Everest is the highest mountain in the world at 8,849 meters.

On the ground, it’s probably easy to spot along the horizon.

But from above, it’s a lot harder to figure out.

“My New Year’s resolution is to get out as much as possible,” Mark tweeted.

“Well, after I landed. Can you find Mount Everest in this photo?”

Mark arrives at the ISS in April 2021.

He is expected to return to Earth at the end of March.

When the crew isn’t busy working, there are plenty of good opportunities to snap a good photo – weather permitting, of course.

This is because the space station orbits the Earth 16 times.

But it also means that detecting interesting bits can come and go pretty quickly.

So much so that former crew member Thomas Pesquet recorded the times before he was blown up, so he could plan his best moment to snap his photo.
