    Hi everyone,
    
    Space shuttle Atlantis presented a fast moving target tonight as it skipped
    between the clouds in twilight.
    Through the viewfinder it appeared orange in colour , and this was confirmed
    in just a couple of captured frames.
    
    I have placed an image from the pass at
    http://www.satcom.freeserve.co.uk
    Just follow the LX 90 images link and scroll down to the bottom of the page.
    
    Can anyone confirm the attitude please ?
    The picture indicates that the payload bay is facing towards the
    camera.
    
    I'm sure if you look closely , you can see British crewmember  Piers Sellers
    waving out the hatch as he streaks overhead.
    
    Regards,
    
    John.
