Solar transit of the space shuttle and Hubble telescope

Only image ever taken of a transit of a space shuttle (Atlantis) and the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in front of the Sun.

Click on the image to see it full-size. The shuttle and Hubble are in the bottom left corner. To really appreciate this picture, read the photographer's description of how it was taken here.
