British ESA astronaut & test pilot Tim Peak, who - according to his Twitter profile - is currently living out of the international space station for six months, had been waiting to capture a picture of Dubai's Palm Jumeirah and finally did so this morning. This first one had a brilliant dragon satellite photobomb, which actually makes the photo event better. He then followed it up with a clean shot of the Dubai coast line. 

Dubai from space.. photobombed!
