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

Each sunrise (and sunset) lasts from a few seconds to a maximum 80 seconds only.

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!
