STS-130 Rendezvous Sunset

February 10, 2010 09:07 by scibuff

Before the Space Shuttle Endeavour docked with the International Space Station at 05:06 UTC, the camera outside of the station captured this beautiful sunset on orbit with the orbiter seen against the horizon of the Earth. At that point, Endeavour was on a rendezvous course behind the station at the distance of about 8.2 km orbiting the Earth at an altitude of roughly 346 km.
