You've never seen Mount Saint Helens quite like this.

NASA astronaut Jeff Williams shared spectacular aerial video of the Washington landmark as the International Space Station flew by this week.

Williams also posted a photo and video of the Olympic Peninsula and Olympic National Park.

The photos and video come as the National Park Service is celebrating its 100th anniversary.

The National Park Service was established on Aug. 25, 1916.

Parks nationwide have been hosting special events throughout the month to celebrate the occasion.
