APOD: Earth at Twilight (2013 Apr 06) Image Credit: NASA, ISS Expedition 2 Crew, Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130406.html Explanation: No sudden, sharp boundary marks the passage of day into night in this gorgeous view of ocean and clouds over our fair planet Earth.

With the Sun illuminating the scene from the right, the cloud tops reflect gently reddened sunlight filtered through the dusty troposphere, the lowest layer of the planet's nurturing atmosphere.

This picture actually is a single digital photograph taken in June of 2001 from the International Space Station orbiting at an altitude of 211 nautical miles. http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/ Starship Asterisk* • APOD Discussion Page http://asterisk.apod.com/discuss_apod.php?date=130406 Starship Asterisk* • On This Day in APOD http://asterisk.apod.com/view_retro.php?date=0406
