A peaceful and breathless Moonrise from the Space Station


On 18 September 2017, ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli shot this beautiful time-lapse showing the Moon rising above the Earth’s horizon together with Mercury, Mars, the star Regulus, and Venus.

ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli is currently working and living on board the International Space Station as part of his long duration Vita mission.

  1. So good ! Thank you. Imagine you are on a Sci-Fi spaceship and you could easily flight from planet to planet, you had a big window and like this you could estimate where other planets are… I even ask myself would it be possible to localise planets only with eye when flighing through solar system.
