It's a simple shadow, like the kind we see everyday, by a thousand miles long! That's so cool.
 
Astronaut Reid Wiseman on the International Space Station shared this image of Earth earlier Sunday morning tweeting, "Clouds cast thousand-mile shadows into the black of #space. A favorite view of ours."

Beginning with the Mercury missions in the early 1960s, astronauts have taken photographs of the Earth. Today, the International Space Station (ISS) continues the NASA tradition of Earth observation from human-tended spacecraft. Operational since November 2000, the ISS is well suited for documenting Earth features and provides an excellent stage for observing most populated areas of the world. Images coming down from the International Space Station are processed on a daily basis and include over 1.2 million images through Nov. 1, 2013.

Thanks.  I agree that it could be boring to most, if not all people.  To me it's fascinating to watch the individual cars to see where they get to and I love watching the clouds.

Your Favorite Place  - 
 
Hong Kong is an amazing place to visit.  I'm very lucky to have been there four times and on the companies dime.  I found that Hong Kong was foreign and yet familiar at the same time.  I never was nervous walking by myself in any neighbourhood.  Getting around is very easy.  You can walk, take transit (MTR) or a taxi.
I took this stitched image one night at Kowloon Public Pier.  I hope that someday I can go back and take a similar image in HDR.
If you ever get the chance to go I highly recommend that you jump at it.

It is really a nice place for tourists. I wish to come back there again soon.

Here is a photo I took of Hong Kong.  Hong Kong has one of the most iconic  skylines in the world.  I found Hong Kong familiar and yet foreign.  It is truly a wondrous place to visit and explore. I am lucky to have been there, especially on someone else's dime (my former company).  I hope you like it.

I feel like I'm getting crammed out here. I feel like I no sooner pot up a field and then someone attacks it and take it down. On average, I haven't been able to have a field up for more than a day. Any tips or suggestions?

It's good that they're taking it down! More AP for you! But, keep at it, you'll soon be able to put up some damage against them when you're level 6 - 7! Putting up mods like shields can prevent them to some degree (but not much).

Please post future questions into the private as you are intro'd in there: https://plus.google.com/communities/115345832885104121921

Thanks!

This is not a 360 panorama but I hope you like it. I took this from my hotel window in Guangzhou, China. I hope my translation is accurate. I am using Google Translate to type this.

Sometimes I'm a bit of a moron. I previously posted another version of this image when in fact I wanted upload this one.  I apologise to those who gave me a +1 I hope you take a look at this one and give me another +1 if you still think it deserves it.

This is why I really like the teachings of the Dalai Lama. This makes so much sense to me and it is a reminder of how I want to live my life.
 
.
CONTROL YOURSELF
Dalai Lama 

"The very purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticize others
Rather, we must criticize ourselves
How much am I doing about my anger?
About my attachment
about my hatred
about my pride, my jealousy?
These are the things which we must check in daily life."
