Solar powered: Amateur astronomer snaps space shuttle and telescope speeding across the sun | Mail Online

"At first glance it appears like a giant tennis ball with a speck of dirt.

But this extraordinary image, taken by an amateur astronomer, shows the Space Shuttle Atlantis and the Hubble Telescope passing in front of the sun.

It is the first time they have been photographed together making a 'solar transit' and came several minutes before Atlantis made contact with the telescope and attached to it".
