EXP 7 CAPTURES CALIF FIRE PICTURES



Submitted by Arthur - N1ORC

STATION CREW CAPTURES UNIQUE VIEW OF CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES

     The wildfires ravaging southern California are even impressive from
240 
miles above the Earth. NASA astronaut Ed Lu took still photographs of the
fires 
through the windows of the International Space Station Sunday. 

The photos are available on the Internet at:

http://www.spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/

The fires in the San Bernadino Mountains were burning out of control at 2
p.m. 
EST Oct. 26, when Lu snapped the images. Astronauts aboard the Station
take 
hundreds of photos of Earth during their stay on the orbiting research
complex. 
Information about Earth photos taken by astronauts throughout the history
of 
space flight is available on the Internet at:
