A View of the Wing

Headed home from Southern California, I made sure to get window seats for both legs of the trip. Being in group B ensured I sat behind the wing and in the wake of the jet engine. Still, I enjoy getting the bird’s eye view of the landscape.

The Ultimate Window Seat

Inside the Cupola, NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy, an Expedition 36 flight engineer, uses a 400mm lens on a digital still camera to photograph a target of opportunity on Earth some 250 miles below him and the International Space Station. Cassidy has been aboard the orbital outpost since late March and will continue his stay into September. Image Credit: NASA.

Oh, to have this vantage. I’m so jealous…
