On Wednesday, one of the International Space Station astronauts took a photo showing bright orange light surrounding the horizon of the earth. This orange light is known as the gloss of the highest layers of the atmosphere caused by radiation.
This glow arises when the molecules in the atmosphere are loaded with sunlight and ultraviolet radiation emitted by the sun. When atoms reach radiation, they begin to move faster, and when they collide with each other, they release energy in the form of light. The result glides over the horizon of the earth.
The photo is taken over in Australia and at the front is part of the cosmic station, but in the background there is an orange glitter, millions of stars and the cloud of the earth.
This shine enabled researchers to look at how the Earth's atmosphere works, that is, as particles entering the space from the earth change the atmosphere of the earth.
