Sri Lanka and india

The island nation of Sri Lanka and the brightly-lit southern tip of India feature in this photograph from the International Space Station.

This portion of the Indian sub-continent is surrounded by three major water bodies including the Laccadive Sea to the west, the Indian Ocean to the south and Bay of Bengal to the east. A starry sky and an atmospheric glow frame the Earth's horizon.
