As seen on National Geographic News the space shuttle Discovery and the International Space Station pass across the sky above Hungary. The shuttle was separated from the station on the way back home. This was the last flight of Discovery before getting retired. Discovery appears surrounded by haze because the shuttle was in the process of dumping wastewater when this sequence of images was taken. Click on the star-pattern icon above the image to see a closer view of the shuttle hazy trail. See this view in a time-lapse video. Tamas Ladanyi/
