Thick banks of altocumulus clouds obscure a landmass - but stop at the coastline giving way to clear skies over the ocean beyond. A low sun angle in this view gives the clouds and the land a golden appearance and reflections from inside the space station are visible in the window glass. The sun angle gets lower and lower as the shot progresses - and these reflections grow relatively brighter as we pass into the dark side of the Earth.
