Space station astronaut sees missiles exploding on Gaza and Israel

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.
