A new serene photo from NASA captured two spacecraft at dusk, 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 space launch system’s first booster, as it sat on launch pad 39B at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on April 8. Above, a faint streak in the sky is the International Space Station, which orbits 418 km above Earth.
