Dear Friends,

Here is my latest catch from a couple of days ago where I managed to nail the ISS and shuttle Discovery transitting against the sun. I have been after such a photo for four years and everything fell into place Thursday afternoon and approximately 3.5 hours the shuttle had docked to the ISS.

Nice job Anthony!! 8O
I can remember catching a glimpse once through the eyepiece of the ISS & shuttle. What a great accomplishment to photograph them in transit!
