International Space Station (NASA, 02/26/11)
Editor's note: obviously this isn't an image of Earth, but it's a beautiful shot of the International Space Station, which has been providing us with all these beautiful images of our planet. It deserves to take a little bow!
The International Space Station is featured in this image photographed by an STS-133 crew member on space shuttle Discovery as the shuttle approaches the station during rendezvous and docking operations. Docking occurred at 2:14 p.m. (EST) on Feb. 26, 2011. Photo credit: NASA or National Aeronautics and Space Administration
