Vincent van Gogh was on something when he imagined the landscape and the sky was pulled into taft light vortex. NASA astronaut Christina Koch shared her own ornate view of a starry night with a composite image captured by the International Space Station.
"City lights, stars, thunderstorms, even satellite reflections, a composite of individual photos stacked on top of each other to show all the amazing things we see out the window at night," Koch tweeted on Wednesday.
Koch has plenty of time to contemplate the wonders of Earth orbit.which will eventually earn her the record for a woman's longest single-space flight. It will return to the planet after 328 days in space in February 2020.
We have seen some stunning views of the ISS, includingand . But Koch's composite is a dynamic way of watching what the astronauts see. It captures time, light and movement in a single image. Van Gogh would have liked it.
