A team of students from Space Glasgow took these amazing pictures from the edge of space using a high altitude balloon earlier this week.

The leader of the Anemoi project, PhD student Adrienne Macartney, said "We launched from Kingussie High School at noon with a meteorite contamination experiment onboard, landed at 2pm, drove to the nearest access to landing site by 5pm and had a beautiful walk for 22km to recover the payload, with sunset over snow-capped mountains. It was a great day!"
