Moon Over Earth
Photographed by an Expedition 28 crew member onboard the International Space Station, this image shows the moon at center, with the limb of Earth near the bottom transitioning into the orange-colored troposphere, the lowest and most dense portion of the Earth’s atmosphere.
The troposphere ends abruptly at the tropopause, which appears in the image as the sharp boundary between the orange- and blue- colored atmosphere. The silvery-blue noctilucent clouds extend far above the Earth’s troposphere.
That’s no moon! That’s a… oh, wait, nope, i’m wrong again. That is a moon. Sorry I keep getting those two confused, folks.
When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
When all you have is an iPhone 3G, every picture of outer space from the ground looks pretty crappy.

The most awesome. Blob. Ever.
Because it’s a space blob. That people live in!
Yeah, I’m a little excited.
