STS-117ís constructive stay at the International Space Station came to a close today when space shuttle Atlantis undocked. The two spacecraft parted ways at 10:42 a.m. EDT as they flew over the Coral Sea northeast of Australia.

Pilot Lee Archambault backed the orbiter 450 feet from the station, and then performed a full fly-around to allow crew members to collect video and imagery of the station and its newly expanded solar wings. He will perform the final separation engine burn at 12:25 p.m.

That's no moon TIE fighter... that's a space station.
