Incredible photos of the recent lunar eclipse as seen from the International Space Station
On Monday, a lunar eclipse was visible across much of the globe, including North and South America and parts of Europe and Africa. The full lunar eclipse is also called a 'blood moon' because it gives the moon a reddish tint. It's a spectacular sight from Earth. It's also an incredible view from space.
Samantha Cristoforetti, an Italian astronaut for the European Space Agency, is currently aboard the International Space Station for her second mission, Minerva. She has been in space since April 27 after launching aboard the new SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule Freedom. Cristoforetti shared some of her photos of the lunar eclipse on Twitter.
The ISS is about 400km (250 mi) above Earth, so Cristoforetti's view of the lunar eclipse is quite different from what we could see.
Cristoforetti's mission is scheduled for six months. She and other ISS astronauts perform scientific research, maintain ISS equipment, and perform spacewalks. It's not the first time we've seen incredible photos from astronauts aboard the ISS. Last year, French astronaut Thomas Pesquet amazed us with his images showing the ISS' incredible speed, a 360-degree video tour of the ISS, and photos of a rare blue luminous event as seen from space.
If you missed the recent lunar eclipse, don't worry, another one will be visible in parts of the U.S. and Asia on November 8.
