Astronaut Luca Parmitano captured from ISS Darwin, Australia.
Situated on the Timor Sea, Darwin is the 145K capital city of the Northern Territory of Australia. The Dutch created the first European maps of the area. This accounts for the Dutch names in the area. Darwin has a tropical savanna climate (Köppen Aw) with distinct wet and dry seasons and the average maximum temperature is similar all year round. The majority of rainfall occurs between December and March (the southern hemisphere summer), when thunderstorms are common and afternoon relative humidity averages over 70 percent during the wettest months.
The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
