As promised on Instagram, here’s that incredible image of STS-132 undocking with the stunning visual of the International Space Station (ISS) and the Moon beyond Atlantis’s tail.  Note in this image that even at this distance, the Moon is still larger than station.  This image was taken on this day, May 23, in 2010.
