'Scenes from the ISS' shows the world from an astronaut's eyes

You may have seen the shots of Russia's Sarychev volcano eruption NASA posted earlier this week. Well, the folks over at the Boston Globe's Big Picture went through the archives of other photos taken from the ISS, and have dug up some gems.

Some of our favorites are down below. The first is probably the wildest: what looks like an instrumentation panel or a blueprint is actually a photo of roads and circular fields in Egypt. There are also breathtaking views of volcanoes, islands, rivers and cities. What better view can you get of this planet of ours than from the International Space Station?
