Commander Hadfield,

For some time now I've been searching for pictures of what the sky looks like outside of the atmosphere to the naked eyes. I am curious what the equivalent of what of this picture is from space without the atmosphere. I have not had much luck with it.

There's been tons of pictures of Earth from ISS and of distance galaxies from Hubble. I find all those pictures fascinating, but what the space looks like to you still eludes me. Can you, or your colleagues, correct that short coming for me?
