While waiting for the Space Shuttle and ISS to pass over, we saw this awesome display of the crescent moon and Jupiter low in the western skies:

The Space Shuttle Discovery undocked from the International Space Station earlier Monday morning. This is the last flight of Discovery and we were treated to a near overhead pass of it leading the International Space Station, just a little after sunset Monday night.

First up is an image from our allsky camera

Orion and Sirius can be seen in the bottom section of the image. The overexposed right side is the west facing twilight.

Then comes the rest of the images, all taken with a canon powershot A540 on a tripod using standard long exposures of 1-15 seconds.
