another zit on the arse of the universe from warrenelliscom: these are cool, but I think they’re from a U2 and not the ISS? I might be wrong, but the altitude doesn’t seem high enough. Compare.

    Regarding http://www.warrenellis.com/?p=3183, I believe this shot is a better compare. I’m a bit skeptical about the ISS being the shot, and U2 makes lot more sense.

    ISS was not even in the area at the time of launch. From the official STS-121 status report:

    —-
    As Atlantis launched, the space station was 220 miles above the northern Atlantic Ocean, between Greenland and Iceland. Aboard the outpost are Expedition 13 Commander Pavel Vinogradov, a Russian cosmonaut; Flight Engineer and NASA Science Officer Jeff Williams; and Flight Engineer Thomas Reiter of the European Space Agency. They watched the launch via a live television transmission from Houston. Atlantis is set to dock to the complex at about 5:46 a.m. CDT Sept. 11.
