Doesn't look real? Looks like the Shuttle is way too close to the sun. It's only about 560 km's up from what I understand I think?

Cool image.
I followed some of the other links, and have seen(by coincidence) some other of this guys work on credible space/astronomy sites, so I guess its legit or he's fooled a lot of people. Apparently there are web site which tell you where to find satelites etc in the sky given your location. I imagine there is quite some calculation required to work out when and where the suns path will cross the path of the shuttle.
