Atlantis on Canary Islands | tenerife canary islands

Today the shuttle Atlantis has docked with the ISS and the hatches between the two vehicles were opened at 16:18 UTC. In short, the mission STS-132 proceed as planned, except for the odd little problem with OBSS. But what caught my attention is that the approach and docking maneuver took place over the Atlantic, Portugal, Spain and France. And as always a barre for home, what I liked most is this picture of Atlantis on the Canary Islands with the island of Tenerife in the background.

The author is, of course, the prolific Soichi Noguchi.

And since we are, here are a few pictures of the Canary Islands taken from the shuttle or ISS:
