Earth observations taken from Space Shuttle Columbia during STS-80 mission

STS080-759-075 (19 Nov.-7 Dec. 1996) --- This 70mm handheld camera's panoramic view was photographed by the STS-80 crewmembers to capture the aesthetic side of space travel. The scene was in the South Pacific Ocean southwest of Hawaii and west of Christmas Island. The angle of the space shuttle Columbia and the sunglint feature gives the picture an almost three-dimensional affect.
