Spaceship Silhouette

I got this from the Space Weather newsletter:

"The space shuttle Atlantis undocked from the International Space Station Sunday. In a moment of cosmic coincidence, an amateur astronomer in France caught the two spacecraft separating just as they passed in front of the sun. His unusual photo is entitled Spaceship Silhouettes."

The picture is really neat. You may have to click on the picture to zoom in if your web browser automatically fits the image to your screen, but it's the black "smudge" at the 9:00 position on the sun.
