This amazing photo of the sunset over the Indian Ocean comes from NASA and the Earth Observatory. The picture was taken by the Expedition 23 crew onboard the International Space Station. None of us on Earth will ever be able to witness a sunset like this.
In the picture, you can see the curve of the Earth along with several layers of the atmosphere.
ISS astronauts see 16 sunrises and sunsets a day due to their fast orbits around the Earth. Each sunrise or sunset only lasts a few seconds.
