Image Caption:
STS49-71-043, cf. STS49-71-042: Frame 043 was taken 15 seconds
later than frame 042, after about 60 nautical miles of travel by
the Orbiter. The circular thunderstorm downdraft is no longer
within the sunglint pattern and is not highlighted so dramatical-
ly. Furthermore, the increased distance from the subject has re-
duced scale and increased atmospheric haze, producing a much less
striking image. Hasselblad camera, 250mm lens, color film.
