When Thierry Lego took this photo, two astronauts were doing a spacewalk outside the station.
French astrophotographer Thierry Legault showed the ISS passing through three groups of sunspots, the largest of which is large enough to swallow Earth whole. Space reported it.
In addition, Lego took pictures as two NASA astronauts, Stephen Bowen and Warren “Woody” Hoburgh, performed a spacewalk to install a new solar array outside the station.
It is noted that the ISS orbits the Earth every 90 minutes, covering the distance from the Earth to the Moon and back in just one day.
Although both targets may look close in the Lego footage, the International Space Station is at a safe distance from the Sun. The ISS orbits about 402 kilometers above Earth, but the Sun is, on average, about 300,000 times further away from us, at a distance of 150 million kilometers.
According to the astographer, all individual images are single shots with a shutter speed of 1/32,000 second.
It was previously reported that the Crew Dragon spacecraft returned to Earth space tourists after spending ten days on the International Space Station.
