See what the sunset looks like from the ISS?

Koch notes that for astronauts this is quite rare, since the ISS is usually not at the point

day to night (the so-called twilight zone). During the year, the ISS passes this place only twice, the rest of the time the station is always on the sunny side.

Earlier, cosmonaut Alexander Gerst laid out a record with the launch of the Soyuz MS-11, which was successfully completed on December 3, 2018.

The cosmonauts of the ISS have also recently laid out pictures of a very rare atmospheric phenomenon - the own luminescence of the extreme layers of the Earth’s atmosphere, which can only be seen outside the planet.
