Being on board the International Space Station would provide one with ample opportunities to snap some amazing shots of the small blue ball we call home. Did I say amazing? I meant terrifying. Take this rather swirly mess of clouds off the south-western coast of Australia.
Before you fly into a panic, tying down your dogs and what have you, this particular image isn’t exactly recent — it was captured on 29 March with a 14-24mm lens mounted on a Nikon D2Xs. As the photo’s description on Flickr explains, it was a pre-winter storm… and not the apocalypse in cyclone form.
I can’t see Australia myself in the photo, so we’ll just have to take NASA at its word that we’re underneath that, somewhere.
