(22 Feb. 2011) --- 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 Mississippi River is visible winding its way through the city. A 200-mm lens was used to take the picture.
