    A low pressure system in the eastern North Pacific Ocean is featured in this image photographed on Mar. 20, 2011 by an Expedition 27 crew member in the Cupola of the International Space Station. Just under ten feet in diameter, the Cupola accommodates two crew members and portable workstations that can control station and robotic activities. The multi-directional view allows the crew to monitor spacewalks and docking operations, as well as provide a spectacular view of Earth and other celestial objects as evidenced in this image.
