ISS037-E-022125 (28 Oct. 2013) --- The interesting color contrasts of the water surrounding the atolls of Pinaki (bottom) and Nukutavake in French Polynesia caught the eye of one of the Expedition 37 crew members aboard the Earth-orbiting International Space Station on Oct. 28. At first glance to a pair of sleepy eyes, the atolls might look somewhat like a bottle cap and a bottle opener.
