The fall season is considered one of the happy seasons of the year in the West which marks the advent of Halloween, winter, and Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte. The sweet coffee drink with a hint of spices like nutmeg and cinnamon topped with whipped cream, caramel syrup has emerged as one of the most awaited drinks of the year.

However, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has brought its own spin and posted a picture of Pumpkin Space Latte on Instagram this week. The image sourced from International Space Station was a burst of colours ranging from rust orange, with a hint of navy blue and faded crimson, reminding many of the fall season.
