Super Cool Photo From Columbia

Check this out.

It's a very neat photo, unfortunately taken from the Columbia, of sunrise over western Europe. Rush Limbaugh describes it as:

It was taken from the shuttle Columbia on its last mission and relayed by satellite, which is why we have it. What you see is the sunset in western Europe. There are no clouds in this picture. You can see much of Africa, all of western Europe, half of it at nighttime because the sun has set, the other half in broad daylight. You can clearly see Great Britain, Scotland, the British Isles, Spain, the Sahara desert.

UPDATE: I should have checked this out. It's a fake according to Snopes: Sunset from Space
