Trail of the Chinese space station Tiangong 1 as it passed over Maun, Botswana, on the morning of January 15, 2018. The trail appears dimmer at right because the station is emerging from the Earth's shadow. When this image was taken, the space lab had been declared out of control by Chinese authorities. The station crashed to Earth on April 1, 2018.
