Shuttle Approaching Earth at Dusk

These high resolution images of space scenes are matted to perfection on quality card-stock board and feature a description of the image on back.

Shuttle Endeavour was imaged from the International Space Station near Earth's horizon as it approached, where several layers of the Earth's atmosphere are visible. Directly behind the shuttle is the mesosphere, which appears blue. The atmospheric layer that appears white is the stratosphere, while the orange layer is Earth's Troposphere.
