STS-119 spacewalker: new interesting processings
It was March of this year when I managed to capture that spacewalk pic. Some of you may remember.
A short summery: During the STS-119 mission to the ISS, it was during EVA-2 on March 21, with the
spacewalkers Steve Swanson and Joe Acaba. They were at the moment of pass over Europe working
at the Port 3 truss. It was great luck they were working on the Earth-facing side, for the deployment
of the nadir UCCAS (Unpressurized Cargo Carrier Attachment System) during the pass.
Exactly at the work-location, a light detail appeared in the frames taken in the best moments of seeing.
Analysing carefully video recording data from the helmet cams of the spacewalkers it became clear the
spacewalker located mostly Earth-faced should be Joe Acaba.
To find out the point of pass over the observing location in the NASA-recordings, the point of
sunset in both the recordings from the station and the observing location was a great help.
