An astronaut aboard the International Space Station (ISS) captured an extraordinary image of a hydrothermal lake in a snow circle on top of the real-life “Mount Doom” in New Zealand.

Mount Ruapehu, New Zealand’s largest active mountain volcano and the setting used to film Mount Doom in the Lord of the Rings films is at the heart of Tanganyika National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the center of New Zealand’s North Island. Other parts of the park were also used to depict the evil realm of Mordor in the film adaptation of the fantasy epic by J. RR Tolkien by Peter Jackson.
