Η Οία του... Διαστήματος. Sunrise Over the South Pacific Ocean


The sun is about to come up over the South Pacific Ocean in this colorful scene photographed by one of the Expedition 35 crew members aboard the Earth-orbiting International Space Station between 4 and 5 a.m. local time, May 5, 2013. The space station was at a point above Earth located at 27.4 degrees south latitude and 110.1 degrees west longitude, a few hundred miles east of Easter Island. Image Credit: NASA

Μια ακόμη καταπληκτική φωτογραφία που κατέγραψαν μέλη του Διεθνούς Διαστημικού Σταθμού (ISS) έδωσε στη δημοσιότητα η NASA. Πρόκειται για το ηλιοβασίλεμα τα ξημερώματα της 5ης Μαΐου στον Νότιο Ειρηνικό Ωκεανό.

One of Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield's latest pictures from the International Space Station shows a darkened south-eastern United States just before dawn, with the moon rising above.

Πιο συγκεκριμένα τα μέλη του πληρώματος κατέγραψαν την εικόνα ενώ ο Σταθμός βρισκόταν πάνω από μια θαλάσσια περιοχή ανατολικά από το Νησί του Πάσχα.
