Newfoundland and clouds over the North Atlantic Ocean share a scene with a Soyuz spacecraft docked to the International Space Station in this 35-mm focal length photograph recorded by one of the Expedition 26 crew members from 220 miles above Earth. The nadir point is 51.1 degrees north latitude and 50.4 degrees west longitude off the coast of Newfoundland. Looking southwestward, in the lower right hand corner, above the solar panel is the south coast of the island. The sun glint on the ocean’s surface outlines the islands (with the small hook-like appearance) of Saint Pierre and Miquelon. high res (1.4 M) low res (98 K)
