Caption: Mount Everest, seen from the International Space Station (ISS). The view is tilted about 45 degrees clockwise and looks to the south-west. Everest (8850 metres, centre, largest shadow) is brightly lit in the early morning sun. The low-angled light makes the mountains stand out from their shadows. This is Everest's eastern side, the Kangshang Face. The North Ridge, a popular climbing route, runs down to lower centre. In front of Everest, a large glacier (grey) winds downhill. Everest is on the border between China (lower left) and Nepal (upper right). The ISS orbits around 380 kilometres above the Earth. Photographed on 20 March 2002.
