Astronaut Alex Gerst captured from ISS Mt. Taranaki, New Zealand.
Mt. Taranaki, or Mt. Egmont, is a 2,518m active but quiescent stratovolcano of New Zealand’s North Island. In 1881, a circular area with a radius of about 10km from the summit was protected as a Forest Reserve. Because of its resemblance to Mount Fuji, Taranaki provided the backdrop for the movie The Last Samurai.
The local scenery on the ground is as follows.
