Space Photos – Satellite Images


Thursday, September 6, 2018: The sandy desert of Baja California and the turquoise-blue waters of the Gulf of California provide a stunning backdrop to the Canadarm2 robotic arm in this view from a window of the International Space Station. Also visible on the right side of the frame is a visiting Cygnus cargo spacecraft, along with one of the station’s enormous solar arrays. European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst tweeted the photo yesterday (Sept. 5). “California dreaming,” he wrote on Twitter. “One of my favourite orbits is down along the West Coast of USA, from Alaska to the Andes. We fly this route once a day.” — Hanneke Weitering
