The International Space Station goes through a full day in 92 minutes, each with its own sunrise and sunset. The Earth's atmosphere acts as a prism, bending rays of sunlight to paint the station in a quick succession of rich colours. Astronaut Butch Wilmore photographed how the light changes on a solar array.
The station completes 15.51 orbits a day, giving astronauts plenty of chances to bask in the beauty of sunrises and sunsets. These photographs were all taken by current station resident, NASA astronaut Barry "Butch" Wilmore.
