Amazing colours of the Sahara desert are captured in this photograph taken from onboard the International Space Station. 

ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst shared this image on Twitter with the comment: "Irrigation in the Sahara Desert looks like a challenging task from up here...". 

Gerst is currently a member of the resident International Space Station Expedition 40 crew. 

He is spending five and a half months living and working on the ISS for his Blue Dot mission.
