This beautiful image shows the International Space Station – the largest space station laboratory ever built.
It’s a tranquil picture of the ISS, which orbits the earth, and was taken by Echo Camera Club member Nick Lucas on January 23.
As it reflects light from the Sun it looks like a bright light.
If you wish to try and spot and photograph the International Space Station yourself, look for a bright, white moving light in the sky. The space station looks like an aeroplane or a very bright star moving across the sky, except it doesn’t have flashing lights or change direction.
It will also be moving considerably faster than a typical aeroplane (aeroplanes generally fly at about 600 miles per hour; the space station flies at 17,500 miles per hour).
