What is this a picture of?
If your answer was one of the above, you would be wrong.
The Shuttle, the ISS, and the Sun
Most people are unaware that they can see man-made satellites easily with the naked eye. There are even websites that can tell you when a given satellite will pass near you!
The picture was taken on September 17, 2006, less than an hour after Atlantis had undocked from the ISS.
