Claim: Imran Khan’s jalsa in Peshawar was visible from space as shown in a photography taken by NASA


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)’s Peshawar jalsa was massive. Visuals and videos from the jalsa are doing the rounds on social media. However, PTI leader Ali Muhammad Khan went overboard as he shared a photo from the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), claiming that it was from the party’s rally.


Ali M Khan shared three pictures on Twitter after the rally, and among them was a picture from NASA, which was a snap captured from the International Space Station.

The picture shared by the PTI leader actually shows the lights in the Iberian Peninsula, which falls in Spain and Portugal. This picture was taken by NASA and published on their website in 2014.

“One of the Expedition 40 crew members aboard the International Space Station recorded this early evening photo of the entire Iberian Peninsula on July 26, 2014,” the NASA post read.
