Today’s Image of the Day from NASA features a remarkable view of the Earth from the International Space Station (ISS) as it passed more than 250 miles above the North Atlantic Ocean.
The Gulf of St. Lawrence and its coastal Canadian states are lit up by sunglint, a phenomenon that happens when sunlight reflects off the surface of the ocean at the same angle as the satellite that is viewing the region.
The striking photo was captured from the ISS on April 2, 2019.
