    Just when we are told there is nothing new to photograph on Earth...go above it

    Flight Engineer Don Pettit has been aboard the International Space Station and decided to use some of his time to get some photographs. And WOW did he get some photographs. Long exposure shots of the Earth, with star trails, aurora's, lightning strikes and more

    To see the photos, check our his Flickr Stream : http://www.flickr.com/photos/nasa_js...th/7257867240/

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated
    Nikon, etc!

    What can you say?
    Amazing! I want to go there too!
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.
