Astronaut Terry Virts, aboard the International Space Station, shared this picture earlier today, stating this was "the view of our Galaxy from space."

Normally, the reason you can't see stars in high oblique photos from the space station is that the shutter speed is too fast. Fast shutter speeds are used to eliminate blur from the motion of the orbiting outpost. One exception to this rule is when astronauts use camera settings specifically to photograph features such as the Aurora and the Milky Way. The crew must use slower shutter speeds in order to capture the light of the aurora. In these cases stars also show up in the photograph. The photos are also slightly blurry because very long exposures are needed to capture these dim nighttime features.

Merry Christmas all!
 
From home to home and heart to heart,
From one place to another,

Brings us closer to each other.
Merry X-Mas
