ISS030-E-007397 (24 Nov. 2011) --- This is a panoramic view of Earth's atmospheric limb photographed by an Expedition 30 crew member aboard the International Space Station when it was over a point centered approximately at 41.5 degrees north latitude and 179.9 degrees west longitude (central North Pacific -- right at the International Dateline). The view is looking westward, well after sunset. The panorama includes airglow, some cloud formations, a portion of the space station silhouetted at the top of the frame and a star field.
