Long Exposure From the International Space Station

European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesquet is spending six months on the International Space Station for the Proxima mission. In his free time, like many astronauts, he enjoys looking out of the cupola windows at Earth and taking photos that are shared on his social media channels.

This is a 30-second exposure shot of Earth captured by Thomas in honor of NASA astronaut Don Pettit, who perfected the technique in his many photos taken from on board the station. (ESA/NASA)
