I believe there are two kinds of people in this world: those who claim every sunset is unique, and those who claim they’re all the same. If you belong to the second group, here’s something that isn’t a “boring” sunset you see every day. Astronomer Alexander Gerst gives you a new perspective with two photos that show what a sunset looks like from space.
Gerst is an astronaut at the European Space Agency. In 2018, he returned from space where he served as Commander of ISS Exp57. He took these wonderful photos that show what a sunset looks like from space.
Other than being an astronaut (which is pretty epic on its own), Gerst is a geophysicist, volcanologist, and explorer. And on top of it all – he takes some fantastic photos. You can see more of his work on his Flickr, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
I personally love sunsets and I think each is unique, but seeing it from space definitely makes this common sight even more admirable for me. If you enjoy space-related photos, check out this timelapse of the Earth, this video of a solar eclipse, or browse NASA’s media library.
