Space Shuttle Atlantis


The Space Shuttle Atlantis leaves a streak of light as it passes near the Moon in the east at sunrise Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2006 over Tyler, Texas. In this six-second time exposure, the Shuttle is moving right to left. Atlantis remains in orbit for an extra day while additional inspections of its heat shield are performed by the crew. - AP Photo/Dr. Scott M. Lieberman
