The ORANGE planet: Stunning NASA image from the ISS reveals Earth in a rare ‘airglow’


It is the latest in a series of stunning space images.

While sunrises on Earth can be impressive, from orbit, they take on a whole new dimension.

These incredible images, taken by European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst are the lateast in a stunning series of images he has taken from the ISS.

However, these are the images that rendered him speechless. 

‘I don’t know any words, in any language, to match the beauty of an orbital sunrise’ he said after witnessing the incredible scene.

 Last most he captured amazing images of a super typhoon.

‘As if somebody pulled the planet’s gigantic plug,’ he wrote.

‘Staring down the eye of yet another fierce storm. Category 5 Super Typhoon Trami is unstoppable and heading for Japan and Taiwan. Be safe down there!’ 

Gerst attained the unique perspective from 250 miles above the surface, aboard the orbiting International Space Station. 

The stunning photo offers a glimpse into the views seen only by the astronauts on the ISS. 

Gerst is currently leading the Horizons mission on the ISS, in his second stint at the orbiting lab.
