Caption: High altitude clouds catch early morning light and through them we can see the snow covered tops of mountains. An astronaut adjusts the camera's position and the picture wobbles a bit before the camera is secured again. The mountain ranges pass and lower brown plains are visible with darker drainage patterns etched out of them. At first thick cloud banks obscure the terrain on the right of the picture and eventually the entire view. By the time it clears we are over an ocean with a turquoise atoll visible through a gap in the clouds. By the end of the clip thick cloud banks obscure the scene again.
