Earth in moonlight | International Space Station


ESA Astronaut Thomas Pesquet of France: "When there is a full moon you can see almost as clearly as during daylight, especially when there are city lights to illuminate the night as well! Our satellite is reflected on the sea and gives the Station a gray aura that distinguishes us from that of the sun."

"Par nuit de pleine lune, on voit presque comme en plein jour, les lumières des villes en plus ! Notre satellite naturel se reflète sur la mer et donne à la Station une aura grise qui nous change de celle du soleil..."
