There may be no better view of Earth than from the International Space Station. In honor of #EarthDay , enjoy these photos taken by from 250 miles above our home planet. You can search astronaut photography here: . #PictureEarth 

Millions of people saw #Eclipse2017  but only six people saw the umbra, or the moon's shadow, over the United States from space today.

It's the moon, sunspots AND the station in front of the sun. photographer captures station transiting sun during #Eclipse2017

Currently living in space, @StationCDRKelly  is 1 of 6 people that literally cannot be dragged down. #DragMeDown 

Cameras outside the station captured views of #HurricaneDorian  at 12:16 p.m. ET on Sept. 1 as it churned over the northern Bahamas. The storm is a dangerous Category 5 hurricane, carrying the strongest winds in recorded history for the northwestern Bahamas. #Hurricane  #Dorian 

Astronauts on Apollo 8 captured the first “Earthrise,” and now, astronauts on the space station capture Earth’s lights, days and nights. The best way to celebrate #WorldPhotographyDay  is with photos of our world. Want more astronaut-captured shots? Visit .

Today we are celebrating 17 yrs of continuous human presence in space! Congrats to all who have had a part in this extraordinary endeavor.
