Fact Check: No, The Viral Image Does NOT Show Paris From The International Space Station

An image is viral on social media with a claim that it is the night view of Paris, France from the International Space Station (ISS).

NewsMobile did a fact-check and found the claim to be fake.

On doing a Google Reverse Image Search we found that the same image was uploaded by a Twitter handle @PicPedant on July 12, 2021, claiming that the viral image is an artwork and not a photograph of Paris from ISS.

The image was shared with the caption, “This is a Photoshop artwork by @georgesarmando titled “Our Blue Planet,” cropped and rotated. It is absolutely not from the ISS or any spacecraft.”
