Phenomenal Images of Earth


This awesome photo, taken from the space station MIR in 1999, shows the shadow of the moon on earth during a lunar solar eclipse! It’s part of a collection of pictures taken from satellites or space flights that capture weather effects, geographical changes, or other phenomema.

wow matt! That must have been wonderful.

The pic of the eclipse shadow is almost disappointing - like something went wrong in the lens or something - unless you know what the phenomenom is.

i used to work in one of the bigger space science museums in the country, and had a chance to work with jim lovell on a human space exploration exhibit. some curators and historians and i were given a box of photographs from him from his gemini 12 mission - a couple hundred of pics of the earth from space (amongst other mission activities too). it was very surreal. i wasn't looking at photographs in a book or online, i was holding color 8x10s his (and buzz's) "ultimate vacation." amazing stuff.
