Video from the International Space Station

A Jump over the Terminator

ISS034-E-19958This video was taken by the crew of Expedition 34 on board the International Space Station. The sequence of shots was taken on January 5, 2013 from 12:53:14 to 13:19:54 GMT, on a pass from western Iran, near the border of Iraq, to the Southern Ocean, just south of Western Australia. This video begins looking southeast over the Persian Gulf, with the Arabian Peninsula on the right and Iran to the left. As the pass continues down the Persian Gulf, the city of Dubai is near nadir on a small peninsula jetting out into the gulf. The ISS then flies over the Indian Ocean, with the terminator line slowly approaching from the left of the video.
