What an amazing picture. Probably the only good thing that will come from Ivan.

Saved for future wallpaper when I get bored of the current painting of a Tomcat 10 ft off the water.


That's a cool picture right there. Those guy must have the best view on/off the planet.

Looks like the ISS does not orbit the planet very high up.

I believe that would be about 255 miles.

370.5 kilometers up, which is 230.22 miles, as of 5:22 UTC and it's over Australia. Whether or not that's "high up" depends on your perspective.

Edit: SNorman beat me! And, sir, if that was a guess you were damn close to dead on.

Lets also remember that Ivan is roughly the size of the Gulf of Mexico, edge to edge.

Damn nice pic, but it looks like the ISS is about to be sucked into a swirly vortex of doom. Its a tarp!

It's got to be a fake. I just looked out the window and Ivan looks nothing like that!
