The very last post in 2018 is the beautiful night Europe captured by Astronaut Alex Gerst on board ISS. In the middle of the image lies the Alps Mountains and northern Italy. Also lightning is seen in the Alps just north of Venice. Euorpe underwent a tremendous change in politics and economy this year. What will come in 2019?
