One of the Expedition 40 crew members aboard the International Space Station photographed this image from an altitude of 225 nautical miles.
The image features the Ionian Sea (top), Crete (southernmost island at left), the Cyclades (bottom center) and much of Greece’s land mass (right, or northernmost part of the frame).
