Monday Night Pictures

I saw that the ISS was makinga pass tonight and decided to go outside and check it out.  It was only about 20 minutes past sunset, so long exposures to pick up the trail were difficult.  Using a zoom and low ISO got some results.

There was supposed to be cargo ship nearby, but it was too bright to see the much dimmer satellite.

I turned a little to the south of this image and saw the Moon and Jupiter rising over the Rincon Mountains.

IMG_1740Go out tomorrow shortly after sunset.  The Moon will have moved  to the east (left) of Jupiter.  Should be a nice pairing.
