Having enjoyed a clear sky nocturnal photo opportunity over New Orleans earlier (Jan. 26) in their mission, Expedition 26 crew members aboard the International Space Station had another window on Feb. 22 to capture images of the Crescent City or Big Easy from 220 miles above Earth. The Gulf of Mexico is the dark area in the upper portions of the frame. The Mississippi River is visible winding its way through the city toward the Gulf. A 200-mm lens was used to take the picture.
