Sometimes, a little distance is all you need to see things in a brand new way.

For astronaut Terry Virts, his newfound perspective was from the International Space Station (ISS), where he installed the Cupola module, granting an unprecedented 360-degree view from the station.

When he later became the commander of the ISS, he made good use of the Cupola, taking more photographs than any astronaut who came before him.

Many of those images were later used in the National Geographic book View From Above and IMAX film A Beautiful Planet, but to hear Virts tell it, no photo can capture the perfect shade of blue from a sunrise viewed from outer space.
