I was all ready with camera in hand (well, on a tripod) and looking forward to a well placed pass of the International Space Station and the shuttle Endeavor over Hamilton this evening. Naturally, just before they were due to arrive, clouds rolled in. Of course, this big piece of space hardware is so bright that it showed easily through the thin cloud and light pollution. Here is a shot of it going behind the clouds and in front of Cassiopeia.
ISS and Endeavor over Hamilton
There are more passes visible this week, so be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to see the ISS and space shuttle, and don't forget to wave at the astronauts on board as they go by!
This is a blog of recent observing sessions, meetings, happenings within the HAA. Feel free to contribute!
