An astronaut aboard the International Space Station has taken a night-time panorama across the Indus River valley, showing how the India-Pakistan border looks from outer space.

Nasa has released the photograph that shows the border dotted with bright lights.

The border between the two countries is one of the few international boundaries that can be seen at night, because of the orange security lights that stretch from one end to the other.

The lush vegetation of the valley contrasts sharply with the arid terrain that surrounds it, with the bright lights of the major Pakistan city Karachi clearly shown at the bottom left corner of the image.
