    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 : 
    ( 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,
