An American astronaut found no way but to publish a picture of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, from space, to express her love, perhaps, to that city, from which her father's journey seemed to have started.


In the details, the American astronaut Jessica Meir published a picture of Baghdad at night from space a few days ago, commenting: "My father's journey started from here from Baghdad, his birthplace and the birthplace of the Meir family for years." "Good night, Baghdad."


It was not from the US Central Command, but on Friday it retweeted the photo with Jessica's comment on it translated into Arabic.


The image of Baghdad at night received thousands of likes on Twitter, especially since the seemingly quiet capital in the photo has been living since October 1, massive demonstrations, interspersed with violence.
