Image Caption: ISS025-E-013475 (9 Nov. 2010) --- Parts of the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea are easily noted in this unusual circular shaped image exposed by one of the Expedition 25 crew members aboard the International Space Station 220 miles above Earth. A 16mm f/2.8D lens gives this image a fish-eye effect, and the frame of the Cupola window adds to the circular shape. The southern portion of the Florida peninsula, including the elongated metropolitan Miami area, Lake Okeechobee and the Florda Keys, lies just a few kilometers away from islands in the Bahamas chain and the "Tongue of the Ocean." Andros is the largest visible island to the left of center.
