Despite the fact that the team of the International Spaceport station sees 16 sunrises throughout a day, it never ever gets old.

European Area Firm astronaut Alexander Gerst caught an impressive series of orbital daybreak pictures and published them to social networks on Friday. They reveal a molten sun emerging from an intense horizon of orange, yellow and blue stripes.

” I do not understand any words, in any language, to match the charm of an orbital daybreak,” Gerst composed.

The German astronaut, who is a geophysicist and volcanologist, has a flair for catching stirring pictures from his perspective in orbit. He snapped a beautiful picture of the moon in July and some stunning take a look at the glaring eye of Hurricane Trami in September.

Gerst took control of command of the ISS today from NASA astronaut Drew Feustel, who went back to Earth on Thursday. This is Gerst’s 2nd objective to the spaceport station.
