The Terminator: Space Edition

We just finished watching the Sarah Connor Chronicles, because in Casa Pepper we have been on a Lena Headey kick (Cersei, Mama, Sarah Connor!), and in my online searches for more Terminator info, I stumbled upon a different terminator altogether:

In space, the terminator is a sort of fuzzy line that separates day from night on the surface below. Twice a year, near the winter and summer solstices, the astronauts orbiting the Earth are given a perpetual twilight, as they skate between day and night, and they are able to capture some breathtaking pictures.

Seeing how the summer solstice was the end of last week, it seemed fitting to post this. See more photos on NASA’s blog here.
