Astronaut Don Pettit continues to ‘wow’ us all with his photographic exploits. In this great timelapse video, not only does Pettit capture a stunning Moonrise over Earth, but he had the presence of mind to set up his video camera in such way that he could also show himself opening the shutters in the space station’s Cupola observation windows just in time to watch all the action. The time-lapse scene was photographed from the airlock of the ISS’s Russian segment.

Don Pettit should also have had the presence of mind to ‘moon’ in the Cupola’s observation window!
