Astronaut Leroy Chiao Space Blog-the Pyramids

Posted by Admin

Here's a photo of the Pyramids that I shot today. Easier to see than the Great Wall! This is an 800mm shot. I had gotten one of the area early in the mission, using a 180mm. This was a fortuitous photo. Since it wasn't planned, I had to grab the first camera in sight. Unfortunately, this camera is an old one and was kind of dirty, hence the piece of debris that's visible!
