Re: Sunrise *behind* Enterprise after launch in ST1

I never thought the ship was orbiting, it is in a hurry to get out there, I thought it was 'outbound' heading away from Earth (which is a little smaller in frame than in earlier shots, I think, though that could be subject to using a different longer/shorter lens, I guess) ...

So as it gains 'height' headed away from Earth, it is moving 'up' relative to the sun as well.
