The International Space Station will darken behind the Earth’s shadow just before reaching the horizon.

On the International Space Station will be Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques, Russian cosmonauts Alexey Ovchinin and Oleg Kononenko.

The Space Station’s current commander and NASA astronauts Anne McClain, Nick Hague and Christina Koch will also be aboard.
