Watching the Space Shuttle Dock

Nasa has a great live video channel. I’ve been watching the Space Shuttle Atlantis go through its Rendezvous Pitch Maaneuver (RPM) in preparation for docking with the International Space Station. The images are from the ISS, which is currently 600′ above Atlantis. Superb view of Earth zooming by below and audio that include the spacecraft radios and helpful narration. Gorgeous.
