more Bonaire from space

I'm still trying to find the source for the cool picture of Bonaire from space that I posted a week or two ago. I haven't found it yet, but did find some other cool photos that astronauts have taken.

These images are all courtesy of Earth Sciences and Image Analysis Laboratory, NASA Johnson Space Center, and can be found online here. NASA has all sorts of fun stuff online.

Here is a picture of the whole of Bonaire. It isn't that big and image, but it is nice and clear.

Here is a great one showing from left to right, the islands of Aruba, Curacao, and Bonaire, all sitting just north of the coast of Venezuela.

This one shows Curacao, Bonaire and Venezuela. Once, when Richard and I were on top of Brandaris, the highest point on Bonaire, we were able to look just to the left of Curacao and see the landmass of South America. It was sort of an eerie feeling.
The other cool thing about this photo is that to the right (east)of Bonaire, I think you can see the Aves and Roques islands.
