Phenomenal Images of Earth

450_lunareclipse

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. http://deputy-dog.com/2007/11/01/11-phenomenal-images-of-earth/

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.
