Moonset viewed from the Space Station

Exceptional ‘moonset‘ viewed from the Space Station, captured by British astronaut Tim Peake.

Expedition 47 Flight Engineer Tim Peake of the European Space Agency took this striking photograph of the moon from his vantage point aboard the International Space Station on March 28, 2016.



Peake (@astro_timpeake) shared the image on March 30 and wrote to his social media followers, “I was looking for #Antarctica – hard to spot from our orbit. Settled for a moonset instead.”
