ISS and Space Shuttle

WoW! tonight the International Space Station with the Space Shuttle attached came overhead at 7.20pm. I have seen the ISS lots of times before, but never as bright as tonight!
A spectacular sight!
I took some pictures with my Canon 350D mounted on a tripod in the back garden. Here it is passing through the constellation of Orion.
The ISS has its new solar panels fitted, so this along with the Space Shuttle makes it a huge object in space.
