"Moonlight cruise over the Pacific at 28,000kph" Astronaut Reid Wiseman shows us a fantastic time-lapsed view of Earth from the Cupola of the International Space Station.

1st Vine from space! Astronaut Reid Wiseman took this video from the International Space Station. It shows a single Earth orbit (would be about 90 minutes real time). The space station's orbit was parallel to the terminator, in which case the sun never sets. June 5, 2014.

Astronaut Joe Acaba talks from space with the cast of The Big Bang Theory. Cool.

    Thank you for posting these. Following what you were up to on the ISS reignited my childhood fascination with space, and now, at the age of 30, I decided to do something about it and joined a local astronomy group and really enjoy learning about space and everything in it. Thank you so much!

Cosmic quiz: Do you know the International Space Station?

Thank you Don Pettit for the privilege of sharing your window on the International Space Station. And, with our deep gratitude for being such a caring community, we wish all of you – our fellow passengers on Spaceship Earth - a happy 2014. Peace on Earth, and see you next year!

    Hard to imagine that construction of ISS started on this date with the liftoff of Zarya.

    Read your story, Karen. Thank you so much for sharing. Thank you for being real and genuine. It's easy to see others' successes and to think less of yourself, but you helped remind me that all people are people. You seem like a really awesome person, and I'm glad I got to read your words! Have a great rest of your time in the ISS! Almost finished!

  • Kendal Milot

    Such an amazing story. I had to share it with my family and friends. Thanks so much for taking the time to do it and share your experience.

    Thank you for these, Karen! You have NO IDEA how wonderful it is for so many of us to live our childhood fantasy-careers vicariously through you :)

A family friend took this picture of ISS, with me on board, as we flew over my childhood home in central Minnesota September 30, 2013. Thanks Dan Broten! KN from space.

  • Evelyn Guyette-Mero

    Oh, so that is how it looks! Thanks for posting. Now I will know what to watch for.

  • Evelyn Guyette-Mero

    Oh, I'm in MI so I will watch next time you fly over. I will try to get a picture for you.

  • Lorna Teske

    Does it always have a contrail ? I did not think it would have a contrail very often because it is solar powered most of the time. Did they take photo while engines fired to boost it up ? I am in Michigan, too. I still have not seen the ISS fly over.

  • Evelyn Guyette-Mero

    Lorna, you can sign up at the NASA web site and they will send you an email when the ISS will fly over your area! It flew over my area at 7:00 tonight. It will look like the brightest star in the sky moving about as fast as an airplane.

  • Evelyn Guyette-Mero

    Also, Lorna, here is the NASA web site that has a calculator for the fly overs in your area. It did not list my town so I just choose one of the towns that is sort of near to me. Here is the link... http://spotthestation.nasa....

Here, the Cygnus cargo vehicle was approaching ISS from below as we passed by the coast of South Africa. September 29, 2013. KN from space.

This picture was taken shortly after the capture of Orbital Science's Cygnus cargo vehicle the morning of September 29, 2013. KN from space.

As we fly perpendicular to the terminator, we get an edge-on view of our Space Station's solar arrays. Taken September 18, 2013. KN from space.

This was the first time I'd seen the reflection of Earth's horizon on our solar arrays. Taken September 18, 2013. KN from space.

It's launch day! Orbital Sciences' Antares rocket with its Cygnus cargo spacecraft is scheduled to lift off at 10:50 a.m. EDT. In this images, Antares is seen on the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport (MARS) Pad-0A at the NASA Wallops Flight Facility, Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013 in Virginia.
