Meteor Crater - Space Shuttle & International Space Station Imagery

The Space Shuttle and International Space Station orbit the Earth at different inclinations and altitudes, providing different views of the Earth's surface. Astronauts take advantage of variable fields-of-view with different exchangeable lenses and camera bodies, different look-angles (depending on the geometry of the overpass of an area), and changing illumination from the sun on successive passes. From that database of astronaut photography, several images of the Meteor Crater and the surrounding region have been captured.
