This surreal photo was taken on February 16, 1997 during STS-82 Discovery’s Hubble Servicing Mission 2. The photo is of astronaut Joseph Tanner while on spacewalk to maintain the Hubble Space Telescope. The direct sunlight overexposure on the image actually gives is an eerie look. The dark curvature of the Earth and the tail section of Discovery create a scene better than any digital creation.
