The atmospheric glow blanketing Earth's horizon

The atmospheric glow blankets the Earth's horizon beneath the stars, as shown in a photo taken while as the International Space Station orbited 261 miles above the Pacific Ocean southeast of Japan.

On Tuesday, Sept. 28, three residents of the station will take a short ride aboard a Soyuz MS-18, relocating the spacecraft to prepare for the arrival of the next set of station crew members.

NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hei and cosmonauts Oleg Novitskiy and Pyotr Dubrov will undock from the station’s Earth-facing Rassvet module at 8:21 a.m. EDT. They will dock again at the Nauka Multipurpose Laboratory Module at 9 a.m. This will be the first time a spacecraft has attached to the new Nauka module, which arrived at the station in July.
