Astronaut and … Photographer. Thomas Pesquet has just posted three new photos of Brittany taken from space, and more precisely from the International Space Station, on Twitter. This time it is the cities of Brest, Rennes, Saint-Malo, Dinard and Quiberon.
When the International Space Station flies over France, it arrives either from the southwest or from the northwest. In the second case, Brittany is the first Earth on the horizon after the Atlantic Ocean, ”explains the French astronaut, who has just taken the commander of the International Space Station for a week, to justify these new images of the Breton point.
These photos of Brittany are among the last to be given by Thomas Bisquet: His mission must be finished at the end of the month, with a return to Earth on that date.
“Brest under the sun and #ArtGiculture motifs everywhere,” Pesquet writes.

“Saint-Malo, whose fences give it a very unique aspect of the space, and the opposite of Dennard. The white spots at Baie du Prieuré and in general everywhere on the Rance are in fact moored boats.”
“It swells on the Quiberon Peninsula which makes the waves vibrate and changes the color of the water. At least use the power of 6 on the Beaufort scale, if I remember my navigation lessons.”
“Rennes, one of the largest student cities in France, is also famous for its musical and cultural life (I was told there is a correlation).”
Thomas Bisquet also begins on Monday, an unprecedented experience with 4,500 classrooms in France, including many in Brittany, on point.
