Not really a comment about the shuttle but a suggestion. It would be a big help if you could please start using target="_blank" in your links so that they open in a new window and we don't have to load the entire page everytime we go back to the page after visiting a link. Thanks

That cannot be from the space station. You can almost make out Cape Canaveral. Plus there is a reflection from the flash, as if it was taken from the window of an airplane.

UPDATE: Got this from
These pictures were taken by astronaut Frank Calderio from a NASA WB-57 aircraft flying at about 60,000 ft.
They were released by NASA on September 15th, 2006 and are of Atlantis (STS-115). Something you don’t get to see every day, at least from this angle.
