New York City in Winter (NASA, International Space Station, 01/09/11)

Newer Older

From approximately 220 miles above Earth, one of the Expedition 26 crew members aboard the International Space Station took this wintry picture of metropolitan New York City, which was bracing for its third heavy storm of the season. The crew member used a 70-mm focal length on a digital still camera to record the image.

    This is a wonderful photo with the snow on it because the it brings out the shadow and topography of the land that perhaps other photos would not.

    No problem :-)

    Here's a photo of the same region, but zoomed in on New York City itself, with much less of New Jersey and Connecticut, also including annotations of notable landmarks:
