“Kia Ora to you all in Aotearoa New Zealand. Here is a beautifully clear view of the South Island - captured live from the @Space_Station when it passed by at 12:24PM NZDT today,” ISS Above said on Twitter.

The Space Station narrowly missed capturing Christchurch.

Earlier this week ISS Above captured the top of the North Island and East Coast, in equally amazing footage.
