Photo from NASA archives

We've had a number of email requests for information about the space picture of the U.P., which was used to introduce the extra "Vacation Scrapbook" shots we are displaying this month. The picture above, a view of Lake Michigan and the Lower Peninsula, is from the Johnson Space Center collection. NASA does not place copyright restrictions on its photos, but be advised that its appearance here does not imply endorsement of our pasties. Wonder if that policy would change if they had a little taste test? :o)

Here is a larger version of the U.P. shot we have been displaying. Our thanks to Dave and Gloria Dix for relaying this unique perspective to us. If you would like to download this photo, do a right-click on the picture and select "Save Image" in most browsers. More vacation/reunion shots are coming next week, as we wrap up Summer 2000.

Thanks so much, Charlie, for the info on how to download the photos........I get to see beautiful photos plus learn something new on my computer....what more could I ask for? I was wondering how to do that, and you saved me from having to go look it up.....and that isn't always that easy. I really enjoyed the Sept. 11th photo of the rocks on the shore. Thanks again, and keep up the marvelous work. Your photographers are amazing. A pasty lover, Ellen from Florida

Such beautiful shots of beautiful Michigan from space! You are really wonderful to make the Johnson Space Center's URL available for everyone to view. Since I work at JSC it really made me proud to see that site in your note. Thanks Charlie.

I hate to be a self promoter, but at the Picture Michigan website, there's a section called Michigan From Space in The Galleries. A few nice images of Michigan from shuttle missions.

These photos sure a good way to ease the homesickness of a bootjacker living in Europe.
