UAE astronaut Hazzaa AlMansoori on Tuesday shared some stunning pictures of Dubai clicked from space.

The images showed the two Dubai palm-shaped islands, a port, and the world islands project.

"A breathtaking image of Dubai from space. This city is my biggest source of inspiration," Hazzaa said in a tweet.

AlMansoori became the first Emirati to go to space on September 25 and the first Arab to go to the International Space Station (ISS). He returned on October 3 after his eight-day stay there, where he conducted important scientific experiments.

AlMansoori is currently in Moscow where he is being monitored for his health.
