Stunning Space Station Video: Moonset over the Atlantic Ocean

NASA’s Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth has issued a fascinating video, courtesy of the crew of Expedition 30 on board the International Space Station (ISS).

The sequence of shots was taken January 9, 2012 from 11:45:52 to 11:55:44 GMT, on a pass over the North Atlantic Ocean. This chain of shots was taken as the ISS was traveling northeast over the Atlantic Ocean.

Beginning northeast of the Caribbean islands, the crew pointed the camera towards the full Moon to show Earth’s celestial partner in gravitational lock setting over the horizon.

The pass ends west of Western Europe, still over the ocean.
