Orbit: NASA astronauts photograph the earth

Book Cover
Average Rating
National Geographic Society,
Pub. Date:
These selections from 100 manned US spaceflights were taken from relatively low-flying spacecraft on conventional film, and have been digitally corrected to approximate what the astronauts actually see. The 175 photographs capture familiar places--Cape Cod, the Sahara, the Grand Canyon, and Mt. Everest; cyclones and other unusual weather formations; environmental tragedies--scarred forests and topsoil washing into the sea; and the mystic colors of the aurora. An index provides details on specific camera equipment and information about each photograph. 11x12.25". Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
