I saw this fantastic photo by Thierry Legault at spaceweather.com today. It was taken just a day ago (Sept. 17) and shows the space shuttle Atlantis just after undocking from the International Space Station, silhouetted against the disk of the sun.
Download the high-resolution version (1.0 MB JPEG file and worth it).
I’ve been in awe of Thierry Legault’s photos since I saw this one on the Astronomy Picture of the Day site five years ago. Cool stuff!

Thanks for the picture and the links!
I felt a bit depressed today and this is just the kind of things that can cure me : )
