Besides Moscow, other cities in this night-time astronaut photo are Nizhny Novgorod (400 kilometers from Moscow), St. Petersburg (625 kilometers away) and Finland’s capital city, Helsinki.A thin green line of the aurora borealis (northern lights) crosses the top of this night-time photograph taken by an astronaut on the International Space Station. The moon appears as a white disc just above the aurora. Airglow appears as a blue-white cusp along the Earth’s limb. Moscow makes a splash of yellow light and is easily recognized by the radial pattern of its highways.
