Vincent van Gogh was on something when he imagined the landscape and the heavens crept into swirls of light. NASA astronaut Christina Koch shared her own clever vision of a starry night with a composite image captured from the International Space Station.
"City lights, stars, thunderstorms, even satellite lights.A set of individual photos superimposed to show all the amazing things we see at night through the window," tweeted Koch Wednesday.
Koch has plenty of time to contemplate the wonders of Earth in orbit.this will finally allow him to win the record of the longest space flight of a woman. She must return to the planet in February 2020 after 328 days in space.
We saw breathtaking views of the ISS, includingand , but Koch's composite is a dynamic way to observe what astronauts see. It captures time, light and movement in a single image. Van Gogh would have liked it.
