Astronauts took this amazing image as they orbited the Earth on board the @Space_Station. The only thing it’s missing is someone like you to identify the center point location of where this picture was taken! Visit the new CosmoQuest Image Detective tool and try to match the center point location of this and other astronaut images of Earth!
Here’s a hint for you prospective Image Detectives: The center point location of the astronaut image shown above is located on the western border of the Persian Gulf within the annotated area shown on the accompanying Google map below.
