A serene new NASA photo has captured two spacecraft at twilight, one in orbit and one on Earth, as the agency tested its new Artemis 1 moon rocket. 

The photo, taken by photographer Joel Kowsky, shows the agency’s Artemis 1 moon rocket — the first Space Launch System booster — as it stood on Launch Pad 39B of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on April 8. Overhead, a dim streak in the sky   is the International Space Station, which orbits 260 miles (418 km) above Earth.
