Northern Coast, Gulf of Mexico at Night (NASA, International Space Station Science, 10/29/10)
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/
From 220 miles above Earth, one of the Expedition 25 crew members onboard the International Space Station shot this night time image of the northern Gulf coast. Mobile Bay and the city of Mobile (top left, beneath one of the solar panels of a docked Russian Soyuz spacecraft), New Orleans and Houston are visible as the view "moves" southeastward. The Interstate Highway 20 cities of Jackson, Shreveport, Dallas and Fort Worth are also visible further inland. The view extends northward (left) to Little Rock and Oklahoma City.
