Meteors, Asteroids and Comets
This image shows the asteroid Vesta in a starry night sky along side the bright star
epsilon Viriginis. Vesta is barely visible to the naked eye from the darkest and
clearest observing sites on Earth, but this picture was taken on March 24th through
a window on the International Space Station (ISS) by Science Officer Don Pettit.
Because the view from the ISS is not as obstructed by the Earth´ atmosphere, Vesta
was easily captured using a digital camera.
