Images of UAE from Space

All seven emirates of the UAE have been captured in stunning images taken from space.

Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah is one of the most photographed landmarks from the International Space Station. However, there are many more remarkable structures and natural wonders throughout the Emirates that have been captured by astronauts and satellites over the years.

KhalifaSat, the first Emirati-built satellite, has captured some of the most famous landmarks in the UAE over the years. This includes Sharjah’s largest mosque and the Jebel Jais mountain in Ras Al Khaimah.
