International Space Station Imagery
Galveston Island
high res (1.0 M) low res (47 K)
ISS034-E-067298 (12 March 2013) --- One of the Expedition 34 crew members aboard the International Space Station recorded this image of much of Galveston Island (right hand two-thirds of the photo), which is annually a popular "spring break" spot for students and vacationers from all over. The activities were just getting started when this photo was made -- about ten days before the "official" start of spring. The west end of Bolivar Peninsula is visible in the lower left quadrant of the image. The Bolivar area looks much different from the way it appeared prior to the devastating Hurricane Ike in September 2008.
