Bahamas Islands Seen From Orbit


Bahamas Islands

Captured by crew members of Expedition 47 on the International Space Station, this composite picture of the Bahamas islands was compiled by NASA at the Johnson Space Center.

The Bahamas is a coral-based archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, comprising 700 islands and cays that range from uninhabited to resort-packed. The northernmost, Grand Bahama, and Paradise Island, home to the sprawling Atlantis resort, are among the best known.
