Colours from Space


NASA astronaut Don Pettit’s images captured from the International Space Station show foreign stars and planets as blurred colourscapes. Combining light and movement, the long-exposure images reimagine the solar system as abstract beams of coloured light.

This theme is discussed further in the Stylus Spectrum for Spring/Summer 2014 as part of the Motion Colour Rationale. More of Pettit’s images can be viewed via his Flickr account.
