NASA astronaut snaps space station photo of stars, cities, spaceships and comet

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.
