Caption: A view looking straight down onto a deep blue ocean from around 200 miles up. Passing lines of cumulostratus clouds which create a beautiful marble effect set against the water below. The edge of the space station window can be seen clipping the shot top right. About a minute into the clip there is a cross fade to a second view passing over a mountainous coastline laced with cirrus clouds. The coastline passes into a long peninsula. Two minutes into the clip it cross fades again into another marbled view of lines of white cumulus clouds set against a blue ocean back drop. Three minutes in the shot cross fades again to a land mass passing from right to left. We are crossing mountains and valleys dusted with snow. The fine detail of the drainage patterns can be seen making their way to the coast, where the thin line of a white beach can be seen. Thick banks of stratus cloud obscure the ocean just off shore.
