Stereo view of International Space Station

Take a look at the image above. This cool stereo view of International Space Station(ISS) was constructed from parts of two separate images (S122-E-009880, S122-E-009893) and an additional background recorded as the shuttle orbiter Atlantis undocked from the ISS on February 18. Atlantis and the ISS were traveling over 7,500 meters per second at an altitude of about 350 kilometers.

The shiny, 7 meter long module extending from the station at the lower right side is ESA's Columbus Laboratory, delivered by Atlantis. After a successful 13 day mission to the ISS, Atlantis landed at Kennedy Space Center on Wednesday. NASA
