View from the window of the Zarya module showing a pronounced curve to the Earth's horizon, passing over thick cloud banks towards the terminator line separating the daylight side of the Earth (to the right) and the night side of the Earth (to the left). Dominating the left side of the view is a solar panel array tilted towards the sunlight. Around four minutes into the clip the illuminated portion of the Earth has passed and the planet below is in total darkness. Light from the Sun still continues to catch the solar arrays and the window frame of the ISS, but grows slowly more golden and red as the station orbits over the horizon and the sunlight is first filtered through the Earth's atmosphere and then disappears completely plunging the entire shot into darkness.
