"Shine on You Crazy Diamond" | International Space Station

"Shine on You Crazy Diamond" | International Space Station

The last rays of an orbital sunset shine like a diamond while fading below Earth's atmosphere as the International Space Station soared 263 miles above the Pacific Ocean off the east coast of New Zealand.

"Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is a nine-part Pink Floyd composition written by David Gilmour, Roger Waters, and Richard Wright. It appeared on Pink Floyd's 1975 concept album "Wish You Were Here". The song is written about and dedicated to founder member Syd Barrett. Pink Floyd are an English rock band formed in London in 1965.
