NASA pic of the Day


This Dec.1965 photo released by NASA shows waves of clouds along the east flanks of the Andes Mountains casting off an orange glow by the low angle of the sun in the West as photographed during the Gemini 7 mission, which included astronaut James A. Lovell, looking South from Northern Bolivia across the Andes. Lovell, who was on Apollo 8 with Anders, later commanded the ill-fated Apollo 13 flight. From 240,000 miles away Lovell said he understood ‘how insignificant we are, how fragile we are, and how fortunate we are to have a body that will allow us to enjoy the sky and the trees and the water and the vision and the hearing and all that stuff to see what’s going around out here. Everything out there is so stark.” (AP Photo/Courtesy of Earth Sciences and Image Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center)
