Space Station Solar Panels

A tiny representation of the sun sneaks through between a truss-based radiator panel and a primary solar array panel on the Earth-orbiting International Space Station.
This photograph was taken by one of the Expedition 38 crew members on Jan. 2, 2014. Clouds over Earth and the blackness of space share the background scene.
