Atlantis pictured in orbit
« on: May 16, 2009, 07:49:48 PM »
This photo shows the space shuttle on the way to repair the Hubble telescope.  Measurements on the picture indicate that the spacecraft was about 130 miles from the camera when this shot was taken, indicating it was probably in a low orbit at the time.

And people on the forum moan about what was happening in pics taken just yards away  :D
The pic is Tytti Porkka of Finland - I actually took it myself, but have lost all my pics and have no more :(
