A combination of water and sun give the incredible result of a band of colors. But in the place where it was captured, it will amaze you. Look at her photograph of a rainbow in space captured by an astronaut.

Rainbows have been the subject of incredible legends surrounding good fortune. They say that at the end of the rainbow there is a leprechaun with a pot full of gold coins. They are also fascinating because after a storm, when the sun rises, everything seems to return to calm and a rainbow illuminates and beautifies the environment.

But perhaps no one had imagined being able to see the image of a rainbow in space. The image was captured by the Russian astronaut and crew member of the International Space Station (ISS), Sergey Kud-Sverchkov, place where cosmonauts coexist when they travel to space.

Shocking! A rainbow in space

Sergey shared this impressive space rainbow through his social networks; along with the following legend:

¬ęThe true cosmic rainbow: the northern lights, the limit of the Earth, the Milky Way, the dawn and the International Space Station. Cute, right?”

The Russian captured both the space structure (ISS) and part of the Milky Way. In the background you can see the most impressive: the cosmic rainbow that covers the circumference of planet Earth, with bright and sharp colors.

Why this spatial image?

This burst of beautiful colors was certainly not formed from the combination of water and light, because in theory it is not a rainbow as we know them.

It is an optical effect produced by the combination of the northern lights that border the atmosphere of planet Earth and the sunrise on the horizon.

So strictly, the image that you cannot stop seeing and sharing with your Telcel Friend Kit connected to #TelcelLaMejorRed with the highest Coverage is actually a spectrum of lights that gives the sensation of being a rainbow; a slightly more complex phenomenon.

At the bottom of the photo the astronaut mentions that he captured this image with a flash camera in one shot (24mm f1.4, ISO 12800 1.3sec). Fascinating, right?
