A virtually cloud-free day gives the astronauts an almost perfect view. The five volcanoes of Isabela are clearly visible, as is Fernandina's caldera. On the right, the two large islands are Santiago (upper) and Santa Cruz (lower). The small island between them is Pinzon. North is toward the top right of the picture. The picture was taken November 8, 2001.
