Some - not the full raw set - of the entry photos we've been raving about on L2 are now on nasa.gov:

You have to see these:

Nice pictures! But where are the ones taken by Atlantis of the ISS after undocking. They are normaly not that late?

Did anyone record the part where they were playing the Voyager theme? I love that.

Rick Fischer recorded it from the crowd.

Good words here--thanks.  I too find it difficult to make meaningful comments.  I plan to get back to the "fav pics of the shuttle" thread(s) at some point and throw a few pics there.  In the meantime, this is one of the all time favs of Atlantis.

Thanks to all at the NASA centers for your efforts over the years!

Noe has posted his video of Atlantis streaking across the sky during re-entry, from his vantage point in Cancun, Mexico!

I was able to get him the re-entry ephemeris sighting data for his location - so his cameras were spot-on and ready!

That's fantastic -- I think on the last flight I'd mentioned that it looked like some of the video footage of entries near JSC.  Meant that as a complement.  I don't recall seeing a roll (reversal) in other footage, as it appeared happens in this one.

A fellow A.netter caught the double sonic boom from his front yard in Orlando.
