Lunar sunset from the ISS

This picture was taken by the Russian cosmonaut Sergei Ryazansky from the International Space Station, where he currently lives and works as part of the ISS-53 expedition. The space station rotates around the Earth along a low Earth orbit at an altitude of about 400 km. Hence our natural companion looks no longer the same as from Earth. First of all, its sizes and details are amazing, which can be discerned. The picture shows the moment when the Moon begins to hide behind the Earth.
