Photo: Galveston as Seen From Orbit

One of the Expedition 34 crew members aboard the International Space Station recorded this image of much of Galveston Island, which is annually a popular "spring break" spot for students and vacationers from all over. Weather-wise, the whole week was pretty much a carbon copy of this clear day, though official spring time was more than a week away.

The west end of Bolivar Peninsula is visible in the lower left quadrant of the image. ISS034-E-067299 (12 March 2013) - high res (1.0 M) low res (54 K)
