The Iberian Peninsula at night, showing Spain and Portugal, is seen in an undated NASA handout picture taken from the International Space Station. Madrid is the bright spot just above the center. The clarity of the night image is possible thanks to the European Space Agency's NightPod, installed on the station in 2012, according to a NASA news release. It incorporates a motorized tripod that compensates for the station's speed of approximately 17,500 mph and the motion of the Earth below.
