Europe, and Africa at Night (NASA, International Space Station Science, 10/28/10)
Editor's Note: This is part of a small photoset, "NASA Views Earth at Night." I'll try to keep adding as time permits. www.flickr.com/photos/28634332@N05/sets/72157625188331491/
Parts of Europe and Africa are very easily recognizable in this night time image shot by one of the Expedition 25 crew members aboard the International Space Station flying 220 miles above Earth on Oct. 28. The view "looks" northward over Sicily and the "boot" of Italy, with the Mediterranean Sea representing most of the visible water in the view and the Adriatic Sea to the right of center. Tunisia is partially visible at left. Part of a docked Russian spacecraft and other components of the ISS are in the foreground.
