After a very cloudy day the skies cleared to allow a view of this stunning pass of the ISS and Discovery. I could not believe the timing was so fortuitous to show the shuttle closing in on the station. I captured this, what I guess could potentially be, a once in a lifetime image of these two spaceships travelling as separate craft using Canon EOS 40D using eyepiece projection through a hand guided 8.5 inch Newton.
