Inside the Cupola, NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy, an Expedition 36 flight engineer, uses a 400mm lens on a digital still camera to photograph a target of opportunity on Earth some 250 miles below him and the International Space Station. Cassidy has been aboard the orbital outpost since late March and will continue his stay into September.

Black Marble - Americas  NASA image acquired April 18 - October 23, 2012  This image of North and South America at night is a composite assembled from data acquired by the Suomi NPP satellite in April and October 2012. The new data was mapped over existing Blue Marble imagery of Earth to provide a realistic view of the planet.

Hemispheric View of Venus by NASA Goddard Photo and Video, via Flickr  color coded to represent elevation (and to make it pretty;)

The hemispheric view of Venus, as revealed by more than a decade of radar investigations culminating in the Magellan mission, is centered at 270 degrees east longitude. Colors represent different elevations.

City Lights Illuminate the Nile    NASA image acquired October 13, 2012    The Nile River Valley and Delta comprise less than 5 percent of Egypt’s land area, but provide a home to roughly 97 percent of the country’s population. Nothing makes the location of human population clearer than the lights illuminating the valley and delta at night.

On Oct. the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite captured this nighttime view of the Nile River Valley and Delta.

NASA's Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope has unveiled a previously unseen structure centered in the Milky Way. The feature spans 50,000 light-years (roughly half of the Milky Way’s diameter) and may be the remnant of an eruption from a supersized black hole at the center of our galaxy. The structure spans more than half of the visible sky, from the constellation Virgo to the constellation Grus, and it may be millions of years old.
