Blue is my favorite color and this magnificent picture of Antarctica is full of it. Tim Peake took the breathtaking shot from the International Space Station. The view from the ISS is usually straight down, but in this orbit they got an oblique view of Antarctica - and perfect weather too. Just wow!

Anybody live in the Chicago area, or know it well? Here's a picture of Chicago taken from space. NASA's Tim Kopra, Expedition 47 Commander, took this night image earlier this month from the International Space Station.

British astronaut Tim Peake took this picture of France from the International Space Station a few days ago. The northern part and far south are hidden by clouds, but the outline of the country is clear. Southern Britain is also visible.

British astronaut Tim Peake took this great picture of Italy, including Sicily and Sardinia - and also Corsica, though that's part of France. If you follow the link to Flikr, you can enlarge the picture by clicking on it.

In April I was on a ship that sailed through the Straits of Messina which separates Sicily - just off the toe of "the boot" - from the mainland. From the angle of this photo it looks as if it's attached, but there is water there!

Angie, thank you for telling me about that wonky URL. Apologies to anyone who clicked on it and just came back to the forum. I've corrected it in the original post and also here is the Tim Peake photo of Italy!

Thanks, Mona. It's a beautiful photo. I love Italy and can look at the photo and see where my father's paternal family lived.

Landsat 8 view of the San Francisco Bay area, March 2015. (Photo: USGS/ESA)

Some highlights

San Andreas Fault: You can see it in the top-left corner, running diagonally to the south.
San Francisco: The city is on a peninsula in the center left. Densely populated urban areas show up in white/grey.
Forests & parks: Shades of green
Agriculture: In the upper right corner, the geometrically-shaped fields are in different colors depending on what's growing there.

Tim Peake on the International Space Station took this picture of the Patagonian southern ice field.


Beautiful. And also looks quite yummy.
