Earth from Space

This view of Earth’s horizon as the sunsets over the Pacific Ocean was taken by an Expedition 7 crewmember onboard the International Space Station (ISS). Anvil tops of thunderclouds are also visible.

  1. Can someone explain why the sun creates a "hotspot" on Earths surface. At 93,000,000 miles, should this be possible?

  2. I will be seeing like this as if am onboard the International Space Station (ISS) in the coming years as some people will be travelling to the space in the near future including me, I do believed it will come.

  3. Božanstveni pogled na "Majčicu Zemlju".!!!
