"The West to East flyby was directly overhead and quite challenging to capture. This is one of my favourite bookmarked ISS viewing sites and which I composed around the water and anticipated flyby over the moon. I particularly love the moment the ISS disappears behind the Earths shadow (as seen fading out on the far left). Captured with Olympus E5 and 8mm fisheye. This composite image comprises 13 No 15s exposures, F4.5, ISO 640 and put together with Starstax software." - Mark

“I was on my roof, 61 floors up, in downtown Chicago, IL. I had the camera (nothing fancy) set at 3x zoom and the pic is blown up 200%. I considered that maybe it was a plane way far away, but i have about 6 other photos from the flyby in different positions in the sky following the path that have a similar result. A plane wouldn’t have been at that angle in every shot. Considering the path, I would have gotten a side view in the following pic and there’s a good chance I would have gotten a red or green light on the side of the image if it was a plane. I was super excited that I got anything besides a dot! I tried to photograph the ISS again a couple weeks later and got a bright zig-zag. I think it’s time to upgrade the camera.
btw, I think it’s great that you are on the path to becoming an astronaut. I’m cheering for you!” – Deborah…who really prefers to be called Kas
