Keith’s note: This is a much longer version of the previously released video – with music. If at all possible watch this at 720p resolution. As the payload slowly rotates you will see Discovery’s vapor trail at the Earth’s limb. The payload (with camera) swings to the west (where the sun is) and then swings back to the east, past Discovery’s vapor trail, around to the west again and then continues to rotate to the east toward the fading vapor trail.
