The view from astronaut Scott Kelly's new home 200 miles above Earth

The picture was taken by Astronaut Scott Kelly on August 9, 2015, the 135th day of his one-year mission in space on the International Space Station. The Milky Way stretches the curve of Earth in the scene that also records a faint red, extended airglow. The galaxy's central bulge appears with starfields cut by dark rifts of obscuring interstellar dust. Since November 2000, people have been living continuously on the International Space Station.
