Northwestern Pacific Ocean (NASA, International Space Station, 04/27/12)

    Newer Older

    Soyuz TMA-22, with three Expedition 30 crew members onboard, appears as a tiny object in the lower left corner of this image photographed by one of the Expedition 31 crew members currently onboard the International Space Station, partially visible at right foreground. A short time earlier, the two spacecraft began their relative separation, thus cutting in half the number of personnel onboard the orbital outpost for the time being. The station was over the northwestern Pacific Ocean. Seen in the picture also are the Sea of Okhotsk, ice floes, part of the Kamchatka Peninsula, the Tartar Strait, highlighted with sun glint, and Sakhalin Island.
