Description ISS010-E-22495 (2 April 2005) --- Numerous recognizable features appear in this detailed view of London, United Kingdom, photographed by an Expedition 10 crewmember on the International Space Station (ISS). The photographer had to look back along track for the shot, from a position over northern Germany. The most striking visual features are green open spaces such as Regent?s Park, Hyde Park and St. James?s Park east of Buckingham Palace. Many smaller parks indicate why Londoners are proud of being able to walk miles through the city mainly on grass. The River Thames?with its bridges and barges (some of the more than 14,000 craft registered to sail the Thames)?is the axis upon which the city was founded in Roman times. The relatively small area known as the City of London coincides with the ancient walled Roman city of Londinium on the north bank of the river (the line of the wall is marked closely for almost its entire length by modern streets), and includes St. Paul?s Cathedral near where the Roman temple stood. For scale, the river is 265 meters wide near St. Paul?s. The City is the financial center while Westminster is the center of government, including the Houses of Parliament and Downing Street, where the British Prime Minister lives. Several large structures visible in this image are railroad stations; three serving areas north of London (Euston, St. Pancras and King?s Cross), and Waterloo Station serving southern Britain. The London Eye, a famous Ferris wheel 140 meters high, is situated on an oval island in the River Thames, visible just west of Waterloo Station. Many larger buildings can also be identified, partly because they cast shadows?Buckingham Palace, St Paul?s Cathedral, and the Tate Modern art museum (a converted power station, the 99-meter chimney was designed to fall just short of the crest of St Paul?s dome).

Description ISS006-E-22939 (4 February 2003) --- City lights of London, England were captured with a digital still camera by one of the Expedition Six crewmembers on the International Space Station (ISS). This nighttime view of the British capital shows the city?s urban density and infrastructure as highlighted by electrical lighting. Beyond lie isolated bright areas marking the numerous smaller cities and towns of the region and as far southeast as Hastings on the coast. London?s two major airports, Heathrow and Gatwick, are visible to the south of the city.

Description ISS007-E-09408 (July 2003) --- ISS007-E-09408 (5 July 2003) --- This nadir view of London, England, was downlinked from the International Space Station by one of the Expedition 7 crew members. A number of man-made landmarks are visible in the digital image, along with easily recognizable natural features, such as the River Thames, seen winding primarily in an East-West direction across the frame. The crew members could not help but be thinking of the Grand Slam Tournament being played at this time at the Wimbledon All England Tennis Club located in the south west of London. Wimbledon is just out of frame below the southwards bulge of the Thames.
