Bresnik, who publishes his photos on Twitter, also uploaded a few weeks ago night-time shots of Jerusalem from space.
“The golden city of Jerusalem, Israel at night. A city of such importance to so many,” he wrote on his Twitter account above his images.
Accompanying the picture of Jerusalem taken at night, he also added photos of the Kotel, along with the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Dome of the Rock to symbolize the city's importance to the country's three main monotheistic faiths.
The 50-year-old astronaut, who served as a fighter pilot in the US air force before joining the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in 2004, also treated his followers to snaps of the view from above Copenhagen, New Zealand, San Francisco and Paris.
Last year, NASA released new photos taken by astronauts at the International Space Station of the earth at night—among them one featuring Israel, Egypt and other countries in the region.
