Who is taking this picture?;) I had no idea that it looks very flimsy, for the lack of a better word, like a weather balloon.:):) You know what else? It doesn't look very high up. I mean, you can see the pattern of the clouds below that are somewhere in stratosphere. That would put it 50k-100K from Earth's surface... LEO is 200 -1000 or, higher. ISS is somewhere on 400k above. Thermosphere is supposed to be a region of very hot temperatures, high wind tides and containing high cosmic radiation. Some sources say it could be seen as an "outer space" which is considered to be space/cosmos.

The stratosphere starts just above the troposphere and extends to 50 kilometers (31 miles) high. The ozone layer, which absorbs and scatters the solar ultraviolet radiation, is in this layer.

The mesosphere starts just above the stratosphere and extends to 85 kilometers (53 miles) high. Meteors burn up in this layer

The thermosphere starts just above the mesosphere and extends to 600 kilometers (372 miles) high. Aurora and satellites occur in this layer.

Sorry for the looong comment but I'm absolutely fascinated with this topic.:):)
