Spaceshuttle and ISS in one frame…

During a astrophotography session I recently got both Spaceshuttle and ISS on one frame, or to be more precise on several frames.

The first object with some “haze” around it is the Discovery dumping excess water (weight) before returning to Earth. Discovery is “followed” by the ISS.

Further examples of this event can be seen here:
