Help Wanted: Find a NASA page that has this image

Post by RJN » Fri Aug 20, 2010 9:28 pm

Digg is showing an image that is described as being from Expedition 22 up on the Space Station. Here is the Digg link:
http://digg.com/space/A_Big_Fiery_Ball_ ... _s_Horizon

Unfortunately, I was unable to find this image, so far, on any NASA site. Can anyone? This might make a cool and instructive APOD because the Sun appears to be setting below the horizon. If you find a NASA source, please link to it in reply to this post.

Here you go.

FYI, they use a Mission-Roll-Frame catalog system, and this one is ISS022-E-16133, which shows up in quite a few file names for this image on various websites outside NASA.

It is also a great shot to show the different layers of the atmosphere
