Everyone could see the launch from Earth, but have you ever wondered what it looked like from space? One of the Russian cosmonauts, on the ISS, made two pictures and shared them on Twitter.

Wagner was first photographed from the ISS Cape Canaveral, where SpaceX launched a Falcon 9. The image seen below was done two minutes before takeoff. Another picture shows a Dragon Crew capsule, which in a few minutes after the launch began to emerge from Earth’s upper atmosphere.

The first phase of the mission was a success. American astronauts now have an important purpose. It docked with the International space station, which will be taken by 31 may at 17.00 GMT. The process will be executed by the computer and should take place automatically.
