(26 Dec. 2010) --- From 220 miles above Earth, one of the Expedition 26 crew members aboard the International Space Station took this picture of the Houston metropolitan area with a still camera equipped with a 180-mm lens. The view is from the west-southwest looking north-northeast. Bush International Airport is in the upper left part of the frame. Downtown is very near center.
