The International Space Station (ISS) passed over our local area tonight (05/22/2008), and for once it was NOT cloudy. Above is the picture I took at 21:32 EDT as the ISS passed through the Big Dipper portion of Ursa Major. I used a tripod so there is some star trailing.
It was beautiful seeing the ISS pass from South to North along the meridian.
Here are the camera settings I used to compose the picture:
Camera: Nikon D80
Lens: 50mm F/1.8 @ F/3.5
ISO Sensitivity: 400
Exposure: 40 Seconds
Time: 21:32 EDT
Three of four stars in the 'Cup' of the Big Dipper and two stars in the 'Handle' are visible.
