video was taken by the crew of Expedition 30 on board the International
Space Station. The sequence of shots was taken January 30, 2012 from
06:13:36 to 06:23:09 GMT, on a pass from northern Mexico to northwest
New Brunswick. This video begins looking northeast over Texas, where
cities like San Antonio, Houston, and the Dallas/Fort Worth area can be
seen. Continuing northeast over the Great Plains states, cities like
Oklahoma City, Kansas City, and St. Louis can be easily distinguished.
The pass continues over the familiar shape of the Michigan Peninsula,
with Chicago at the south edge of Lake Michigan. As the station
continues northeast, the Aurora Borealis can be seen over Canada.
