That is amazing. Not a visible star. Just a sliver of light in the abyss of darkness.

Totally awesome and better than my view. On earth😷. I would say stay as long as you can to see God’s great big world but I know the family and team members on earth are missing you; so, safe flight back and thanks for sharing science and God’s world.

The International Space Station (ISS) orbits the Earth every 90 minutes and sees 16 sunrises a day.
Behnken, along with Doug Hurley travelled to the ISS in SpaceX’s first manned flight in May. They are expected to return to Earth on August 2, spending two months in space.
