Honduran Coast | International Space Station

Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov: "The Caribbean coast of Honduras and the Bay Islands (Islas de la Bahía) from the International Space Station."

Honduras, officially the Republic of Honduras (Spanish: República de Honduras), is a republic in Central America. It has at times been referred to as Spanish Honduras to differentiate it from British Honduras, which became modern-day Belize. Honduras is bordered to the west by Guatemala, to the southwest by El Salvador, to the southeast by Nicaragua, to the south by the Pacific Ocean at the Gulf of Fonseca, and to the north by the Gulf of Honduras, a large inlet of the Caribbean Sea. The Bay Islands (Spanish: Islas de la Bahía) is a group of islands off the coast of Honduras. (Source: Wikipedia)

Anton is a Russian cosmonaut. Former colonel of the Russian Air Force—fighter pilot. Experience: International Space Station Expeditions 29/30 and 42/43, 54/55.
