Wednesdayitis: The Earth from the International Space Station

As Louis Armstrong put it, what a wonderful world.
Need something to relax with on a hectic Wednesday?
Me too.
This is the view, right now, of from the International Space Station as part of the The High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment, which aims to study how solar radiation affects recording instruments.
As an added bonus, it’s gorgeous. If you don’t mind me, I’ve got a big blue marble to look at.

The cameras aren’t always running, but the “best of” channel is also quite stunning.

Wednesdayitis features aren’t particularly serious. Did that really need explaining?
