WINTER, Wis. (WTAQ) - You’ll soon get a chance to see what a northern Wisconsin astronaut saw from space. Jeffrey Williams of Winter has a book coming out in about a month. And it will have about 300 photos among the 85,000 pictures Williams took in 2006 from the International Space Station.
Williams was also the commander for a 6 month mission which ended this spring on the Space Station – and he took another 100,000 photos on that trip. The book is called “The Work of His Hands, a Heavenly View.” Williams says he’ll give his personal perspective on his experiences aboard the Space Station, allowing the reader to, “vicariously partake in the journey.”
The shots include the northern and southern lights above the Earth’s atmosphere, and a newly-erupting volcano in the Aleutian Islands. The book will also draw from Williams’ roots in the Badger State.
