Click on this and then click on the little black specks in the upper right corner of the image.

What you’ll see is the International Space Station and the spacecraft Atlantis moving across the disc of the Sun.  It is an amazing sight, and shows that we human beings haven’t lost the knack of getting technology right.

My friend Anne Tanner forwarded this link to me.  As she says, it was a remarkable achievement by the photographer, who had about half a second to get that image.

Click on this to see the Brussels Carpet of Flowers.  It would be awesome if it had been done only once, but the Belgians do this every year.
