Day #2416

Day #2416Title: ISS Rising
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I have seen the ISS pass over my house once a few months ago, but never tried photographing it before. Tonight was scheduled to be a good opportunity, so I set up camp outside my front door and pointed the camera west where it started its pass. This is a 30 second exposure – the trickiest part is not knowing exactly where it will first appear, and hoping to get it somewhere in the frame – it moves FAST! The streak above the tree is the Space Station reflecting the sun from its shiny surface. This isn’t bad for a first attempt, I’ll try again tomorrow if the weather lets me.
