Sunrise From Space

From the blog post:

Editor's Note: On Saturday, August 27, 2011, Ron will point his camera out one of the six trapezoidal side windows of the Space Station Cupola to film one of the sixteen sunrises he sees each day. Which sunrise and which window is up to YOU.… See the full post.

Ron: Great Site! Two ideas: 1-You have to do something for people that can't write and read in english. Something relatively easy would be a "Google Translation Widget". 2-Maybe would be useful to have a page/section where crewmembers can post suggestions for the site.

Gerardo, Thanks for your ideas! We are working on some translation options. We don't have a specific page for site ideas, but you are welcome to keep making them as you did here, or send an email to webmaster@fragileoasis.org (live link at the very bottom of the page).

It´s a beautiful sunrise! Is very very difficult to "catch" light in a video when sun rises, reflections make it hard, and when you are in a special situation like up there, you rush to show what your eyes see but camera lenses can not capture that. I love the video! is full of details,Astro_Ron worked hard to show and tell everything, even the movement of solar panels when sunrise, was like being there:) A beatiful gift for all of us! 1st time humanity see a sunrise from iss in a video, isn´t it? I have seen it 3 times already, the 3rd I just closed my eyes and heared Astro_Ron´s voice telling details, to tell you the truth if I was a blind person I´ll enjoy it too. Thank you again!!!!
