Pictures of sunset and sunrise are very popular on social media but if you ever wondered how the dawn of a new day looks like from space then NASA astronaut Victor Glover is here to help you.
NASA astronaut Victor Glover took some mesmerizing pictures aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and told his followers that the sunrises from space remind him of a Bible verse from Psalms.
Victor Glover is one of seven men and women on the space station’s Expedition 64 crew and posted two pictures on Instagram Wednesday of the sun beaming just above the earth’s horizon.
In his caption, the astronaut asked netizens if they can spot the bands of color, which reminded him of the scripture in Psalm 30. He attached two images of the celestial beauty, the first photograph shows the sun visible as a bright red glowing dot in the center of a black background.
In the second picture, the sun looks extremely bright and has no shape. The band here is bluer than the previous image and extremely shiny and some parts of The ISS is visible here.
“Took these photos today, I love sunrises and sunsets,” Glover wrote on Instagram and Twitter. “Can you see the bands of color? They remind me of the scripture in Psalm 30, ‘weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.’ It seems darkest just before sunrise. I wish you all love and light. Goodnight from the @iss.”

In November, Victor Glover made headlines when he was the first black astronaut to be a part of a 4-person crew that launched aboard a SpaceX rocket to the space station. We did a story on him where he carried with him to space: communion cups and a Bible.
“I will probably continue in what we’ve been doing: virtual service, virtual giving, reading my Bible and praying,” Glover said about his time in space.
