(30 Nov. 2010) --- From 220 miles above Earth one of the Expedition 26 crew members used a 180-mm lens to capture this pre-dawn image of the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. area. The photo is oriented 180 degrees different from conventional map orientation, because of the Atlantic-side perspective of the station, therefore Washington, D.C. is to the right of Baltimore which is in the center of frame. The center coordinates of the pictured area are actually located over the Atlantic at approximately 37.4 degrees north latitude and 66.4 degrees west longitude.
