Back to Endeavour departure photos

A ground-mounted camera captures the mating of Endeavour to the 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft over nearly three days. Like the fisheye (see previous page), this camera captured one image every ten minutes, and is presented in order beginning with the photo below this paragraph. Rain drops and morning dew affected this camera during some stages (not shown). This camera stopped functioning before the pushback of the 747 (see previous page also).
