ISS024-E-016051 (27 Aug. 2010) --- This night time view captured by one of the Expedition 24 crew members aboard the International Space Station some 220 miles above Earth is looking down upon New York City. The actual nadir estimate is 39.1 degrees north latitude and 71.2 degrees west longitude or about 170 miles southeast of the city over the Atlantic. Philadelphia is also visible to the right. Long Island and the Connecticut coastal cities mark Long Island Sound. Atlantic City is that small bright spot in the upper right corner. The image was exposed in August and was physically brought back to Earth on a disk with the return of the Expedition 25 crew in November 2010.
