What better way to say goodbye to the Shuttle Orbiter Atlantis then with this spectacular photo of its last mission. In case you're wondering, the big yellow thing is the Sun, while the two dark blips are Atlantis (left) the International Space Station (right). The photo, which was taken from Spain, had to be captured in half a second due to the transit velocity of the space station and Shuttle as they travelled in front of the sun.
