NASA photograph sunset from space

The six astronauts aboard the International Space Station photographed a sunset on Earth seen from space. The  members from expedition 27 recorded the moment when the night falls in South America. The photo was taken at around 19:37 local time, and was released last week.

Every day the crew see on average 16 times the sun rise and by. Because they are in space since March, and should only go down in September, that means they have gone through more than three thousand sunrises and sunsets.
