Time exposures of Wednesday evening's International Space Station/Space Shuttle Atlantis pass over Chicago at 9:52 p.m.

Michael Durr of Westmont, Illinois has sent us these marvelous time exposure photographs taken from his backyard in Westmont of the International Space Shuttle and the Space Shuttle Atlantis passing over the Chicago area. He took these photos at 9:52 pm Wednesday evening, June 20, 2007 and e-mailed us that “it’s amazing to think about people flying over us at that height and speed.”
How true! Many thanks for sharing these with us Michael! They are spectacular!
