The first Emirati astronaut, Hazzaa AlMansoori, shares spectacular photographs of UAE as he sets to come back on Earth on October 3, Thursday.

The magical photo of the UAE was taken at night. The bright lights represents the cities in the country, while, the dark parts are the deserted areas in the country.

The Emirati astronaut will glide back to earth together with NASA astronaut Nick Hague and Russian cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin aboard Soyuz MS-12 spacecraft.

The Soyuz MS-12 spacecraft undocks in the ISS at 10:30am (UAE time). The four-hour journey back to earth will make a touchdown at Zhezkazgan in Kazakhstan.
