André Kuipers, one of the astronauts currently aboard the ISS, recently installed NightPod. The device compensates for the ISS’ movement by tracking single points on Earth automatically allowing for truly magnificent images of the blue marble during the night.

Read more about NightPod and André Kuiper’s work on the esa PromISSe website.

Beside a Giant
Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, looks small here, pictured to the right of the gas giant in this Cassini spacecraft view. Titan (3,200 miles, or 5,150 kilometers across) is in the upper right. Saturn’s rings appear across the top of the image, and they cast a series of shadows onto the planet across the middle of the image. The moon Prometheus (53 miles, or 86 kilometers across) appears as a tiny white speck above the rings in the far upper right of the image. The shadow cast by Prometheus can be seen as a small black speck on the planet on the far left of the image, between the shadows cast by the main rings and the thin F ring. The shadow of the moon Pandora also can be seen on the planet south of the shadows of all the rings, below the center of the image towards the right side of the planet. Pandora is not shown here. This view looks toward the southern, unilluminated side of the rings from about 1 degree below the ringplane. Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute
