Actually a photo taken of the Bahamas by an astronaut on the ISS. You can see the tidal channels cutting between small island cays â€“ this image covers 14.24 km (8.9 mi) westward from Great Exuma Island (not pictured). The deepest parts of the channels are the darkest blue.
The caption says, â€œThanks to the astronautâ€™s steady hands in controlling a long lens in weightlessness, this photograph is detailed enough to show a single aircraft and its twin condensation trails.â€ Can anyone see this? I can't.
But I can see the shadows of clouds on the water, which is rather cool.
