Just too cool: a photo of Space Shuttle Atlantis against the Sun. Remarkably, the shot was taken from the Earth!

Ever since Phil and MarkV set up their telescopes outside Pixar for a transit of Mercury I've been able to get excited about solar events: It's just cool to be able to do astronomy during the day. What's as impressive to an amateur like me is the timing necessary to get a shot like that.
