September 14, 1966 — Gorgeous views of the Earth made from the orbiting Gemini 11 spacecraft. In the bottom image, you can see the 100-foot tether line connecting the Agena Target Vehicle to the Gemini 11 vehicle during its 32nd revolution. In the top image, that’s India and Ceylon (Sri Lanka) in the breathtakingly blue and vast Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea, and Bay of Bengal. In the center, you can see back home to Cape Kennedy at left center. (NASA)
