Star Gazing from the International Space Station (and Free Astronomy Courses Online)

Don Pettit joined NASA in 1996 and has since logged more than 176 days in space, living abord the International Space Station (ISS) multiple times, and always taking his camera with him. In the past, he has shown us What It Feels Like to Fly Over Planet Earth, Views of the Aurora Borealis Seen from Space, and How to Drink Coffee at Zero Gravity. Now we get an edited version of what it looks like to star gaze from low orbit. Whether you look up or down, you can’t lose.

Looking to dig a little deeper into what’s happening out there in the cosmos? Then you might want to spend some time with the courses listed in the Astronomy section of our Free Courses collection.
