Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory shows an incredible sunrise from the International Space Station (ISS) when it was positioned high above Massachusetts.

The astronaut who took the photograph with a Nikon D4 digital camera caught a rare break in the clouds as the Sun’s reflection moved across the Canadian provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador. According to NASA, clouds are so common in this region that not many pictures are captured with such clarity from the ISS.

This image is provided by the ISS Crew Earth Observations Facility and the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit at Johnson Space Center.
