Hello there!

Here's an interesting picture showing the International Space Station orbiting about 350 km above the earth during the Discovery mission STS-119. Astronomer Ralf Vandebergh is credited for the picture which is really impressive considering it was taken from the ground. The most amazing part is actually being able to see one of the astronauts (Joseph Acaba) installing equipment on the stations side. Goes to show you what can be done with some knowledge of the sky, a video camera and a telescope.
