Away 38  Balloon Burst Camera 2

Away 38 carried seven cameras. Three of them were high definition video. The great thing about HD video cameras is 
that you can grab reasonable quality still images. You can see things in the frames that you miss watching the video.  
This camera was looking horizontal across the vehicle. It also was getting dazzled out by the brightness of the Earth.

Here are some frames from the video.
