Moonrise at Europe's mission control


After a spooky day of spacecraft operations, a crescent Moon rises over ESA's mission control in Darmstadt, Germany. Just next to it, to the bottom-right, Jupiter can be seen shining in the Sun's reflected light.

This Halloween photo was taken in the 'H-buidling', where the model International Space Station hovers welcoming tour groups, visitors and those who spend their days keeping Europe's missions up and running.
