|New York City from space|
This is a picture of New York City, at night. It might be a bit confusing at first because it is backwards. From Astronaut Wheelock's position in space Long Island appears on the left side of the picture. The very bright center of the picture if Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and parts of New Jersey. If you look very close you can see the tiny sliver of light, surrounded by darkness, that is the island of Manhattan.
Click here http://twitpic.com/2izl9u/full and the picture will be big enough for you to see the dark area that is Central Park as well as the 2 dark areas in Brooklyn, Prospect Park and Greenwood Cemetery.

Enjoy the pictures and think about just how much is out there beyond our school, neighborhood, and city.
