ISS035-E-034029 (2 May 2013) --- One of the Expedition 35 crew members aboard the International Space Station recorded this image featuring parts of the Northeast. Long Island, New York is the most conspicuous tell-tale feature, which juts out into the Atlantic Ocean. The entire length of Long Island is visible from Lower Bay to Block Island Sound. According to geologists, the origin and shape of Long Island are due to continental collision and glaciers that once dominated the landscape. The metropolitan area of New York City is complete within the photo, near frame center. Parts of Connecticut and New Jersey are also visible in the scene.
