shuttle6.jpg

 

Saw this photo in The New Zealand Herald yesterday - the Space Shuttle photographed from 550km away on Earth as it transits across the Solar background. Sorry I can't get a bigger one as the paper's website does not have a large one there. The actual photo in the paper showed a lot of detail on the Shuttle (in silhouette). I am amazed at the technology to take such photos.

If you look very closely at the top left hand quarter and squint a bit, you can see Baby Jeebus walking about on the surface with his raybans on.

One of the ones linked to though shows blue rings around the sun - wonder how they appear like that.

Only if you've never seen Google Earth.

Think newspaper print - and not just the headlines.
