During the mission yesterday, Saudi astronaut Rianna Bernawi shared a video of the Masjid al-Haram from space.
In the video shared on Twitter by Rayyanah barnawi, it can be seen that the Mosque of Haram appears to be bright in the darkness seen on the ground below space.

In the video, Rayyanah Barnawi can also be heard saying that all this is shining, that is our Masjid al-Haram.
