The space shuttle Endeavour is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 22 crew member on the International Space Station soon after the shuttle and station began their post-undocking relative separation. Undocking of the two spacecraft occurred at 7:54 p.m. (EST) on Feb. 19, 2010. Below the orbiter is the Tasman Sea coast of New South Wales, Australia from Jervis Bay (between the two peninsulas on the left of the image) to the city of Eden.
