STS-125 Shuttle Mission Imagery
Earth scene from the STS-125 crew
high res (0.9 M) low res (104 K)
S125-E-007951 (16 May 2009) --- This high oblique Earth scene from the STS-125 crew is reminiscent of Gemini 11 photos 43 years ago,because of similar altitudes, approximately 350 statute miles. The Florida peninsula and its neighboring geographic features are easily recognizable beneath the clouds along with the tell-tale change in water color associated with the "Tongue of the Ocean."
