The ISS in July: Part I (I Hope!)

A little cloudy here in Tucson, but that didn’t stop me from going out to catch the ISS pass.  Went to my usual haunt at  Saguaro National Park East, right at the end of Speedway for those that know Tucson.  Here is the first shot (click to embiggen).

IMG_1582This is the first part of the pass. There was a bit of a breeze and the clouds were moving fast.  You can see they look blurred in this 15 second exposure.

The ISS moved to a more clear part of the sky and I got another shot.

IMG_1583That’s more like it.  Hoping for better weather later this week, but the monsoon season in Tucson is pretty dicey.
