Good morning #FromEarth Iowa, in the midwestern United States, is the vibrantly lit patch about 1/3 from the bottom and left of this picture taken from the International Space Station on September 29, 2011. A significant percentage of the state's energy is produced by wind and other renewable sources. Areas captured in this picture include from the top clockwise, Chicago, Illinois under a dark Lake Michigan; the dark Appalachian Mountains with the eastern seaboard just beyond; St. Louis, Missouri; Omaha, Nebraska; Des Moines, Iowa; Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. And, of course, the natural light from the aurora borealis over Canada, framing the horizon.

The Thanksgiving story as seen #FromSpace On September 6, 1620, a ship with her passengers and crew set sail from Plymouth Harbor in England on a 3,000-mile voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to the “new world,” planning to drop anchor where eleven years earlier the explorer Henry Hudson sailed in what is now New York Harbor, at the mouth of the river that bears his name. Sixty-six days later, on November 21, buffeted by ocean winds and with winter fast approaching, the ship known as the Mayflower instead dropped anchor at the sight of Provincetown, the hooked sheltering harbor on the eastern edge of Cape Cod visible in this picture. This voyage is remembered with Thanksgiving in the United States - rooted in the harvest of the following autumn - and made possible because of the help of the native population. A little less than 400 years later, a ship with her crew orbit 250 miles above the Earth every 90 minutes, unimaginable to explorers, natives and new settlers of the early 17th century, yet made possible by cooperation among people and nations in the 20th and 21st.
