Same Islands, Two Views

These two images of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, taken from different directions, give a sense of the astronaut flight experience.


Astronaut photographs ISS059-E-59135 and ISS059-E-52689 were acquired on May 7, 2019, with a Nikon D5 digital camera using 50 and 35 millimeter lenses (respectively) and are provided by the ISS Crew Earth Observations Facility and the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, Johnson Space Center. The images were taken by a member of the Expedition 59 crew. They have been cropped and enhanced to improve contrast, and lens artifacts have been removed. The International Space Station Program supports the laboratory as part of the ISS National Lab to help astronauts take pictures of Earth that will be of the greatest value to scientists and the public, and to make those images freely available on the Internet. Additional images taken by astronauts and cosmonauts can be viewed at the NASA/JSC Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth. Caption by M. Justin Wilkinson, Texas State University on the Jacobs Contract at NASA-JSC, and Susan Runco, ARES, NASA-JSC.
