Kataskopos means a view from above, a perspective offered to birds, astronauts, humans looking out the airplane window.
Word of the day: “kataskopos” – a view from height, a perspective offered by great altitude. Literally a ‘looking-down’ (Greek); also ‘spy’ or ‘scout’.
The kataskopos was historically enjoyed by birds, gods & mountaineers; now it belongs, too, to satellites, drones & spacecraft. pic.twitter.com/tpYsVaMLxM

See if you can take a photo that looks like such a view, but is really an everyday object (this saves you the trouble of google searching and using someone else’s photo.
For example, this may appear like some mountain range on a different planet
but in reality it’s a mattress box spring taken at a dump.
