This image, taken during Expedition 28 aboard the International Space Station, shows the country of Greece including Athens, as well as portions of the Aegean Sea, Turkey, Italy, and the Adriatic Sea.About Crew Earth Observations:
In Crew Earth Observations (CEO), crewmembers on the International Space Station (ISS) photograph the Earth from their unique point of view located 200 miles above the surface. Photographs record how the planet is changing over time, from human-caused changes like urban growth and reservoir construction, to natural dynamic events such as hurricanes, floods and volcanic eruptions. A major emphasis of CEO is to monitor disaster response events in support of the International Disaster Charter (IDC).  CEO imagery provides researchers on Earth with key data to understand the planet from the perspective of the ISS.  Crewmembers have been photographing Earth from space since the early Mercury missions beginning in 1961. The continuous images taken from the ISS ensure this record remains unbroken.
