ISS040-E-083662 (28 July 2014) --- Flying 225 nautical miles above the Hawaiian Ridge in the North Pacific Ocean, one of the Expedition 40 crew members on the International Space Station photographed this oblique panorama showing many of the islands in the Hawaiian chain, some of them highlighted by sun glint. Hawaii or the "Big Island" is largely covered by clouds at right center. Maui, Kahoolawe, Lanai and Molokai are more easily spotted because of the sun glint near frame center. Oahu is almost totally hidden by clouds at bottom center, and Niihau and Kauai are out of the frame. Part of one of the orbital outpost's solar panels is obvious at top center.
