A British astrophotographer captured a beautiful see of Russia’s most significant addition to the Intercontinental House Station yet, the Nauka science module, just several hours right after its start into orbit on Wednesday (July 21). 

Martin Lewis, who posts his illustrations or photos on the website isles, took the photograph soon soon after 5 p.m. EDT (2100 GMT) from his back backyard in St. Albans, some 20 miles (35 kilometers) north of London, employing his residence-created 222-millimeter Dobsonian telescope.
