“Ships passing in the night”

"Ships passing in the night"

The International Space Station and Space Shuttle Atlantis create streaks of light in the sky as they pass over Byers Canyon west of Hot Sulphur Springs, Colo., on Wednesday evening, Nov. 25, while traveling at more than 17,000-miles per hour and more than 200 miles above the Earth in this 30-second exposure.  The shuttle had undocked from the space station earlier in the day, but remained in the same orbit as the space station, which created the two separate streaks.
