Caption: View of the night side of the Earth passing beneath the International Space Station. The clip starts very dark with little visible from the window. Some cloud banks can be made out in the dark and the faint silhouette of a solar array on the right hand side of the frame. About three minutes into the clip some faint orange lights can be seen beneath the clouds. The curved edge of the Earth's horizon can just be made out in the distance with the black sky of space above.
