Russian cosmonaut Oleg Artemiev shared, on his social networks, an aerial view of Northern Brazil directly from the International Space Station (ISS).
The video was published this Wednesday morning (24) on his Instagram account and shows the mouth of the Amazon River, known as the Amazon Delta — it flows into the Atlantic Ocean, between the states of Pará and Amapá.
With the song “Mas que nada” (1966) in the background, Artemiev wrote: “Mutim de cores do Brasil da ISS!”.

Last week, Artemiev was repeatedly asked to drop what he was doing and return to the ISS air chamber because of a problem with his spacesuit.
During a live broadcast, NASA officials said the cosmonaut was never in danger.
Still, problems with the battery powering his spacesuit were troubling enough that flight controllers ordered him to return to the space station urgently and connect his suit to space station power.
Other ISS captures
In July, the lights of the Brazilian cities São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Curitiba were photographed by the International Space Station.
The photos, released by NASA, were captured on the 4th, when the ISS was in an orbit 420 kilometers above Brazil.
