Astronaut Terry Virts has been on the International Space Station since November of last year but it wasn’t until now that he was able to get this shot.

If he, along with Samantha Cristoforetti and Anton Shkaplerov, had returned to Earth on schedule instead of being delayed, Virts would have missed his chance.

Also the engines of one of the Soyuz craft docked at the ISS “unexpectedly started” Tuesday and shifted the station’s orbit slightly.
