ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti took this image of the Sun rising from the International Space Station on 20 March 2015. The Sun was partially eclipsed by the Moon as it rose from Earth's horizon.

Samantha took this picture in between operations for an experiment with the Station's centrifuge.

See the complete set of solar eclipse pictures on Samantha's Flickr page.
