New image of 9/11

The most photographed event in the Western world, the 9/11 attack on the twin towers, has been given a new perspective. After all the intense and frightening ground level photographs, a shot taken hundreds of miles away gives a different view. Astronaut Frank Culbertson was in the orbiting Space Station as the attacks were taking place on the ground. He was informed about it from Earth just as he was coming overhead.

The smoke seemed to have an odd bloom to it at the base of the column that was streaming south of the city. After reading one of the news articles we just received, I believe we were looking at NY around the time of, or shortly after, the collapse of the second tower. Read here.

Am I the only person to see a face in this photograph, the evil spirit of that morning?
