This picture of the International Space Station going before the Moon on Feb. 4, 2017 was taken from Rouen, France, the birth town of ESA space traveler Thomas Pesquet.


Despite the fact that Thomas considers Dieppe, France, to be the place where he grew up, he was conceived in Rouen and finished his auxiliary training there before examining aeronautic design. Thomas is burning through six months on the station leading science tries as a component of the Proxima mission.

Astrophotographer Thierry Legault was ignorant of Thomas’ association with Rouen at the time. He initially took after the station’s travel from Lyon yet was not able catch the grouping attributable to shady skies. After two days, the travel line passed near Rouen where, notwithstanding regular shadiness, Legault was effective. He shot this 0.4 second-long travel amid sunlight.
