From their position on the International Space Station, astronauts are treated to a unique view of our planet that most people will never have the chance to see.
The ISS orbits Earth at a height of around 250 miles, meaning the space station makes around 16 trips around Earth every single day.
Now, one NASA astronaut on board the ISS has snapped a stunning photo of “stars, cities spaceships and a comet”.
Astronaut Bob Behnken, who has only been on the ISS for a month, posted the beautiful photo to Twitter.
He wrote: “Night sky, just before dawn from @Space_Station. Stars, cities, spaceships, and a comet!”
While it remains unclear which cities can be seen in the photo, the comet is Comet NEOWISE, which will be visible throughout July.

The comet will reach its closest point to Earth on July 23, at which point it will be at a distance of 103 million kilometres,
