Sunset and sunrise are the most colorful phenomena in the sky, occurring every day, and we all love to see them. We even try to capture the best sunrise and sunset photos possible.
But have you ever imagined how a sunset or sunrise looks from the space?
Well, we have solved this query and brought some astonishing pictures of sunsets taken from the space.
The stunning images show a wash of warm colors layered over a portion of the Earth. In the images, we can see one side of the blue planet cloaked in darkness while the other side is bathed in bright sunlight.
The image was shared by a Twitter account named @wonderofscience with a caption ‘This is what sunset looks like from space.’
