Long Island from Space. The LIShore masthead logo is derived from this beautiful photograph of Long Island taken from the space shuttle. We don't have complete information on the image, but it was shot in March after a snowfall (note the ice in Great South Bay and the upper Hudson) and appeared in the book "Orbit" published in 1996 by the National Geographic Society. This image is cropped from the original picture supplied by NASA through the courtesy of the Long Island newspaper Newsday.
