Caught in the mid­dle

All About Space - - Launch Pad -

Stuck at an al­ti­tude of ap­prox­i­mately 400 kilo­me­tres (250 miles), be­ing on the In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion presents vis­ual op­por­tu­ni­ties that are im­pos­si­ble while on Earth. This is why hav­ing the Euro­pean Space Agency’s (ESA) Alexan­der Gerst up there with his cam­era is ex­tremely grat­i­fy­ing. Ob­serv­ing black space with the Moon shin­ing above the blue at­mos­phere with clut­ters of clouds is a view that can only been seen while work­ing on board a rev­o­lu­tion­ary space sta­tion.
