There have been many photos of what India looks like from space that have been doing the rounds on social media. Unfortunately, most of them have been fake. Even AIB mentioned one of the hoaxes , to tell people about the fake images that were being circulated .
But finally there’s an authentic image of what India looks like from space. NASA astronaut Scott Kelly took a picture of India’s southern peninsula from the International Space Station and not surprisingly, this one is breathtaking.

While this isn’t a photo of India celebrating Diwali (like the hoaxes before it), it just shows that India looks pretty from space on any day.
