The station astronauts can see 16 sunrises a day.
The European space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesket published a snapshot of the sunrise from aboard the International space station.
In the photo, published on the NASA website, you can also see one of the solar panels of the ISS.
In comments to the snapshot, Perky wrote “Dawn. On the ISS we see 16 sunrises every 24 hours, since it takes only 90 minutes to make a complete revolution around the Earth. Of course, we don’t notice most of them, as I look inside. But I can always take a picture”.
