Sadly, it wasn't possible to see anything as we flew over Russia and China due to the carpet of cloud, but there was a lovely sunset with bands of deep orange, gold and turquoise, and as the sky darkened, I could see a crescent moon with two bright planets nearby. Then I managed to sleep for a few hours and woke to fine it was dawn and before long the cabin crew were serving breakfast.
