Sky at Night - markhumpage
May 31 2011. 0405hrs. Space Shuttle Endeavour makes a dawn double flyby pass (ISS) over UK skies prior to landing tomorrow. The only time Endeavour was visible in UK skies, so a rare capture no doubt. Made extremely difficult to capture on camera with a wide angle lens due to ambient sunrise light. The shuttle was visible to the human eye all the way to approx centre of this image but camera could not pick up due to light. Captured with Olympus E5 & 12-60mm SWD.
