      from the "astronomy picture of the day" :-)

      made with a fisheye obviously so hey, thought this list might enjoy
      it ;-)

      Sent to you by Jeffrey M via Google Reader: ISS: Sunlight to Shadow via
      Astronomy Picture of the Day RSS Feed on 2/28/08 ISS: Sunlight to
      Shadow Orbiting 400,000 kilometers above the Earth, the Moon slid into
      Earth's shadow to begin last week's total lunar eclipse. Of course the
      International Space Station (ISS) slides into Earth's shadow every 90
      minutes, the time it takes it to complete one orbit at an altitude of
      about 400 kilometers. Recorded near sunset on February 7, looking
      toward the north, this composite of 70 exposures shows the trail of the
      ISS (with gaps between exposures) as it moved left to right over the
      city of Tübingen in southern Germany. Beginning in sunlight on the
      left, the ISS vanishes as it enters Earth's shadow at the far right,
      above the northeastern horizon. As seen from Tübingen, the passage took
      about 4 minutes. Clicking on the image will download a time-lapse
      animation (mpg file) based on the individual exposures that includes a
      plane flying along the horizon.
