Thank you,!! Georgeous! (p.s. - my daughter, who wants to be the Queen of Math and an Engineer at the age of 7, wants to hitch a ride on your upcoming Mars Mission. What should I tell her?) :D You guys never ever disappoint!
If you want to be an astronaut, you need to be light weight, in shape, and free of physical and genetic defects.
the star trails are truncated, and the bands of light on the earth are continuous. ISS goes around the Earth 16 times in one rotation of the planet. can't see both ends of one star's trail to estimate how long was the exposure was, but it was less than an Earth day. What was the exposure time in number of orbits?
It's a composite image, ergo, many many many images put together to create one. Looks they put together a bunch of images taken from a static position over the course of hours/days, which is why you see streaks of light instead of individuals stars.
Interesting that the long exposure makes the surface of the Earth resemble the surface of Jupiter.
fools! _ you can't "see this in person" and it's not effects/editing, it's related to the exposure time.
