German astronaut Alexander Gerst reports live with this photo of Gaza from the International Space Station. This is his description. "My saddest photo yet. From #ISS we can actually see explosions and rockets flying over #Gaza & #Israel"

A sad view indeed—although I have to confess that I can't distinguish which light flares are normal lights and which are the rockets or the explosions.
