International Space Station Imagery
A crescent moon and the planet Venus
high res (0.1 M) low res (8 K)
ISS006-E-48523 (28 April 2003) --- A crescent moon (right) and the planet Venus were photographed by an Expedition six crewmember onboard the International Space Station (ISS). As a result of overexposure, the dark part of the moon’s terrain is visible, which is faintly lit by Earthshine (sunlight reflected from our planet onto the moon). Earth’s horizon is visible in the lower left portion of this image.
