Sunrise During STS-68 Mission
September 7, 2009
The STS-68 crew aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour told a post-flight audience of JSC employees that this sunrise was one of the most scenic sunrises/sunsets witnessed during the week and a half-long Space Radar Laboratory (SRL-2) mission. Jutting clouds, back lighted by the dawn colors, are sandwiched between the blue airglow and the silhouetted horizon of Earth.
