Moon - Moon Aglow Moon Aglow

Framed by the Earth's horizon and airglow, the full moon floats in the blackness of space in this photo from the Expedition 10 crew on board the International Space Station.

The Station plays a crucial role as an orbital outpost, as NASA pursues an exploration strategy that will send humans back to the lunar surface and eventually on to Mars and beyond.
