Sol 3

Want to see San Francisco via the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission? How about Los Angeles? The rest of the Left Coast?

I really loved this text:

Target Name: Earth

Satellite of: Sol

Doesn’t it make you feel all cosmic and stuff? When do we get to see the satellites of 42 Eridani, I wonder? And Uranus?

Anyway, while we’re on the topic of orbital photos, check out this picture of the Himalayas, snapped from the International Space Station with a simple 35mm camera. (link via camworld) And of course, an early 90’s shuttle photo of the Manila-Laguna-Batangas area, with captions by yours truly.
