The first rays of an orbital sunrise

This image from January 2022 shows the first rays of an orbital sunrise as seen from the International Space Station as it orbited 257 miles above the coast of Venezuela. As the station orbits the Earth, completing one trip around the globe every 92 minutes, the astronauts experience 15 or 16 sunrises and sunsets every day.
