This just in, to Ground Control from Dr. Tom:

Hi John –

Just wanted to send a picture of Davidson from space.  We saw a beautifully clear day Sunday over North Carolina, so I pulled out the 400mm lens and started taking pictures all around Lake Norman.  I’ll keep taking pictures anytime we fly over.  At five miles per second, North Carolina goes by fast!  But it’s always a joy to see all of you.

All the best from ISS,
