The astronauts captured Minsk night from space, as well as other cities, including Paris, Moscow and New York.
Most of the exposure required for photographing the night cities from a great height. The astronauts began to make high-quality images only after a homemade tracking system was installed at the station, it is analogous to watch movements, which are installed on the telescope.
Bright road leads to the airport "Minsk-2" (right).
