Shortly before dawn, a red-rimmed moon helps to light the way for the Space Shuttle 'Atlantis' as it rolls out to launch pad 39A in preparation for launch of Mision STS-86. The STS-86 will be the seventh docking of the Space Shuttle with the Rusian Space Station Mir. Lift off is targetted for no earlier than September 22.
