Sunrise from Above the World

06 Sep

On Saturday, Aug. 27, 2011, International Space Station astronaut Ron Garan used a high definition camera to film one of the sixteen sunrises astronauts see each day. This image shows the rising sun as the station flew along a path between Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Buenos Aires, Argentina.

    Oh a wonderful piece of photography! And it really does illustrate how fragile we are on this planet. Just a small blue rock in space, that’s it!

      Welcome back, my friend. Without you and In Every Atom it has been very lonely.

    Aww, so sweet of you guys. I am back now. 🙂 This is such a great picture. And I didn’t know that the astronauts see 16 sunrises each day from the ISS. I always learn something new, which I love.
