Space Shuttle Atlantis just docked with the International Space Station a few minutes ago, thought we could make this the official STS-132 Mission thread. As always watch live on NASA TV:

cool post, and glad to hear it docked safety! I read that there were some concerns about space junk, but I guess there okay.

Yeah everything went smoothly, the shuttle performed the Rendezvous Pitch Maneuver (Flip) so the Station crew could get photos of the Thermal Protection System, and then they were given go for docking, the hatch is about to open in a few moments.

I have the 1200kbs feed on my computer now.

They are about to do airlock checks now.

Yeah I'm also watching, sounds like they are also sorting out camera equipment also.

Man I like this 1200kbs feed, I am downloading the stream to save the Atlantis broadcast, since this is her last mission.

IN HI-DEF even!

I'll be trying to track and take video of the shuttle docked to ISS tomorrow night through my telescope at about 9:10pm eastern. Of course, that's only if the weather is clear, which seems iffy right now. If I am able to do it you can watch the video feed live right here:

Well the weather wasn't clear on Tuesday night, as I feared, but I was able to capture a video of ISS and STS-132 tonight before a thunderstorm hit. Unfortunately it's overexposed during the peak of the pass since it's the first time I've used this camera for ISS tracking. Also had just reinstalled all my software so I forgot to reset the setting on the tracking software to LX200 classic instead of LX200 gps for the first half of the pass. Anyway, at least now I know what the proper exposure setting is for next time.

Too bad it's not a NASA flying saucer landing. That 'would' be interesting.
