Mount Everest

Everest

There is a great website that posts daily photos of Mt. Everest. The webpage is written in Italian but your Google browser will be able to automatically translate into your language of choice. What’s fascinating about these daily photos is how the weather surrounding the mountain changes from day to day. The picture above is from today, November 3, 2014 and shows us a rare clear image of the world’s tallest mountain.

Mt. Everest is part of the Himalaya mountain chain and sits on the international border between China to the north and Tibet to the south. It is rises to an altitude of 8,848 meters or 29,029 feet above sea level.

The picture below was taken from the International Space Station in 2004, Expedition 8, and shows the stretch of the Himalayas. The ISS operates at an altitude in continuous orbit at 330km (205 miles) to 435km (270 miles) above the surface of the Earth.
