A stunning sunrise aboard the International Space Station, as seen from the Russian MRM1 Module. We're blessed with 16 sunrises each day!

@zelkazupanic Wheels has no clouds in the way … A scenic sunset pic from aboard the ISS is presented and explained here: http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=44267
@PC0101 Even 80 seconds only. This is the dream of my life. ;) And thanks for explain. :)
Amazing 16 sunrises! We haven't seen sunrise for week now!!! I am so happy you have and it seems so quiet up there! Wish you all the best from Croatia!

Magic! Mesmerizing sunrise, you can't get used to, even if 16 times a day! Thank u so much! :)
A great photographer on board to the ISS!! BRAVISSIMI!!!
@CarieMarie1963 @Sorrow80 @Sanduleak_1 Each sunrise (and sunset) lasts from a few seconds to a maximum 80 seconds only.
@CarieMarie1963 @Sorrow80 @Sanduleak_1 One orbit takes 92 to 93 minutes, so the ISS flies round the globe 16 times a day.
Wishing u all the best during your staying up there! I really admire the corage of people like you and your collegues, for all the risks taken, so we can all watch development and growth.... Greatings from Portugal!
