Backdropped against clouds over Earth, the International Space Station is seen from Discovery as the two orbital spacecraft accomplish their relative separation on March 7, 2011 after 12 astronauts and cosmonauts worked together for over a week. During a post undocking fly-around, the crew members aboard the two spacecraft collected a series of photos of each other’s vehicle.
This image features the eastern side of Ellesmere Island the northwest coast of Greenland. This image was created by combining three Envisat Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar acquisitions (February, April, and November 2009) taken over the same area. The colours in the image result from variations on the surface that occurred between acquisitions.
