Astronaut is currently in the International Space Station, and in their leisure time was devoted to make these beautiful long exposure pics of and their movement. As seen from space.

Of course, these photos have a trick. Exposing each of them is 15 minutes but were taken with a modern digital camera that only allows one lens opening time of not more than 30 seconds.

Beyond the visual trick, the result is remarkable, and you can see in the gallery that is just below.
