PERFECT!! I managed to catch it a couple of time too. It's just amazing to think it's really up there. I sometimes wish I could check out the view of earth from there. It must be spectacular. Wonderful AC. Congrats

Great shot and tail trace using a long exposure. Here's a couple of links for everyone who would like to know when the International Space Station will be visible for viewing and photography. The first link is for US and Canadian zip codes only. The second one may work worldwide, as it uses your internet's IP address to figure your location. Both websites are great if you want to track manmade objects streaking around in the heavens. Congrats again to "retiredffwx", and I hope that all who use the links I provided can get some more great satellite photos posted on WU.

About retiredffwx

A life-time love of nature and living near the Shenandoah National Park has allowed me the freedom to pick and choose what I want to shoot. Having the freedom to do so without crowds allows me to wait for the image without interference. It doesn't get much better...
