Caption: Snowy landscape seen passing 200 miles below the International Space Station. The feathery outlines of drainage patterns running off the landscape can be seen flowing off the high ground towards a lake at the top of the scene. A few clouds are also visible - but blend in to the snowy scene beneath. About ninety seconds into the clip the snow passes as we presumably start to cross lower terrain. A thin dusting of snow still highlights some of the river and drainage channels. Some darker rocks lacking snow pass, their geological formations showing some folding structures. Four minutes or so into the clip we cross a coastline and can see the terrain shelving off beneath the water. Thick clouds soon obscure the ocean.
