Space Station Moon Movie

This is what a moonset looks like from the International Space Station (ISS). On April 16, 2003, ISS science officer Don Pettit looked out the window and watched the full moon sink behind Earth's edge-on atmosphere. In only 30 seconds it was transformed from a bright pale disk into a dim pink pancake--like no moonset on Earth.
