    Hi all ,
    
    
    From yesterdays ISS / Discovery pass I have cropped the shuttle from one of 
    the main BMP frames , enlarged it and applied slight gaussian blur and 
    unsharp mask.
    
    I'm not an advocate of processing  images to this extent ,the only 
    adjustments I usually do are brightness if needed and size , but thought it 
    would be interesting to see what happend.
    
    The result here : 
    http://mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/satcom_transits/Discovery_from_frame3.bmp 
    ( which is a negative image ) , shows what appears to be a triangular object 
    , moving  more or less "tail" first.
    
    Digital artifact....?  or was Discovery actually in this flight mode , four 
    hours after undocking?
    
    I'd be interested if any can run a simulation .
    
    Many thanks,
    
    John
