NASA’s Image of the Day for Jan. 10, 2017 is a doozy.

Astronaut Thomas Pesquet of the European Space Agency snapped a photo of North America’s Rocky Mountains from the International Space Station.

When Pesquet shared the photograph on social media, he wrote that “the Rocky mountains are a step too high – even for the clouds to cross.”
