Astronaut Leroy Chiao's Space Blog-the moon

Hi Lia

How are you? I'm counting down the days. Just a little over 50 to go!

This shot of the moon was another accident. I happened to look out the window as the moon was setting behind the earth. I shot this with an 800mm lens. This turned out nicely, as it caught the true flavor of the flourescent blue shades of the earth limb in sunlight.
