This photograph was taken by the crew on board the Columbia during its last
mission. This photograph was taken via satellite,on a cloudless day. The
picture is
of Europe and Africa when the sun is setting. Half of the picture is in
night. The bright dots you see are the cities lights.
The top part of Africa is the Sahara Desert. Note that the lights are
already on in Holland, Paris, and Barcelona, and it's still daylight in
London, Lisbon, and Madrid. The sun is still shining on the Straight of
Gibraltar. The Mediterranean Sea is already in darkness.
In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean you can see the Azores Islands; below
them to the right are the Madeira Islands; a bit below are the Canary
Islands; and further south, close to the farthest western point of Africa,
are the Cape Verde Islands.
Note that the Sahara is huge and can be seen clearly both during daytime
and nighttime. To the left, on top, is Greenland, totally frozen.
Fantastic photograph .

Fantastic indeed - but only if I could see it! :roll:
Ravish's yahoo logic doesnt work exactly that way. Yahoo doesn't let you public live-link (I think thats what they call it - a URL to an image or page with out going thru Yahoo pages)
One work around is to create an album, make it public and share the album URL. But then again, Yahoo will resize the image to visitors.

Hi
This isn't a picture from any shuttle.
Notice there are no clouds and you can't acvtually see the 'shelf' floor of the ocean from space.
It's a darn nice picture though.

Exactly! This is obviously a fake. When is the last time there was a clear day over England?

obvious fake. the level of contrast between night/day is totally wrong.

I think that we've determined that it's a fake , but just one more reason why it couldn't have been taken by the Columbia:
Look at the terminator. It goes from northern Finland to Barcelona and then down Western Africa. This means that in Northern Norway it is light.
The Columbia mission was in January. Winter in the Northern hemisphere. Northern Norway should be dark.
