The image was shared on the official Instagram account of NASA on January 5 with an inspirational caption. The text shared alongside the snapshot reads, “Sun in the sky, you know how I feel. While each & every sunrise literally marks the beginning of a brand new day, it also reminds us all that we, too, can start fresh with a good attitude, positivity, and gratitude. We are all about that for 2021 and beyond”.
It then goes on to state, “In a region often shrouded in clouds, this sunglint photograph was snapped by an Expedition 56 crew astronaut aboard the @ISS who focused a camera lens on the Sun’s reflection point, about 1050 miles to the northeast of the spacecraft’s position over Massachusetts. The photograph shows the horizon and coastline of the Canadian provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador, with Quebec further inland. Flying towards the sunrise looks magical: the feeling of speed, the Earth rotating below and the ISS humming, and then a massive burst of vibrant light”.
