From a Distance: Massachusetts from Space


Behold the glory of Massachusetts as seen from the window of the Space Shuttle Atlantis. This photo was taken by coast guard captain and NASA misson specialist Dan Burbank in September of this year. Clearly visible is the long arm of Cape Cod (at the end of which is one of our favorite spots) along with the islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.
