Awesome photo. Great view of Atlantis coming home.
Spectacular capture!!!! This image proves the sheer velocity,and roundness of our world.
An amazing picture capturing the sad end of an epic era.
Thats a unique view! Amazing! Although i haven't done its for a while... Is the ARISS still active?
Is this the first time a photo like this has ever been captured? It looks like a nose dive.
