NASA has released new images of the Grand Canyon, taken by astronauts from the International Space Station.

The new photos, taken on March 25 by the Expedition 39 crew, show the north and south rims of the canyon, as well as the Colorado River running more than 2,300 feet below the rims.

The Grand Canyon is one of the country’s most popular national parks and is considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
