The rare appearance of the International Space Station – orange earth – Space – Science was noticed


On Wednesday, one of the astronomers of the International Astronomical Track made a photo showing a bright orange light that surrounds the horizon of the earth. This orange light is known as the brilliance of the highest atmospheric layers caused by radiation.

This glow occurs when the molecules in the atmosphere are filled with sunlight and ultraviolet radiation emitted by the sun. When atoms reach radiation, they begin to move faster, and when they collide with each other, they release energy in the form of light. The result is brilliant over the Earth's horizon.

The photo is taken over Australia and in the first place is part of the cosmic station, but in the background it has orange shine, millions of stars and clouds of the Earth.

This gloss allows researchers to see how the earth's atmosphere functions, that is, how particles entering the universe from Earth interact with the Earth's atmosphere.
