    Morning all,
    
    Having had chance to look at my images from last night I realise that 
    perhaps Endeavour is not so bland after all.
    
    I had overlooked a batch of pics that showed the orbiter a little nearer and 
    once I figured out the flight attitude , all became clear.
    I expected Endeavour to be flying payload bay down , however it was in fact 
    tail up , nose down with the underside earth pointing .
    
    The image at

    Shows the two spacecraft in a combined picture ( they were of course three 
    minutes apart , about 1200km (?)
    2233 BST (ISS) and 2236 BST ( Endeavour)
