Another ISS Pass

This time with the shuttle docked.  I got out there a little early to see a little of sunset.

IMG_1596The pass was about half an hour after sunset so the sky was still a little light.  Therefore, I used a low ISO and a shorter exposure.  After taking several shots during the pass, this was my favorite.

IMG_1603We have really good passes here Tuesday and Wednesday.  The monsoon is taking a break, so I might have a shot at them (although the seeing is still not that good here).

If you want to see if they will pass over your area, you can use Heavens-Above or Space Weather’s Simple Satellite Tracker.
