Do you see that streak in the middle of this otherwise-yawn-ish picture? No?
Click on it to make it bigger, then come back.
I'll wait.

Yeah, it's only the International Space Station streaking across the sky. No big deal.

We knew that there would be a good viewing opportunity tonight and headed out to a spot with fewer street lights and we were almost late. I had dreams of shooting a lovely time-lapse movie or at least some lovely star trail photos or something. But we were almost late, you see. There's only a small window of time to see it and we pulled up, literally, the minute before.
You should have seen me fiddling with my tripod as it first appeared in the South West corner of the sky. In the dark.
So, I didn't get the shot of my dreams, but it was really cool anyway and this little long exposure photo is the proof that I saw it.
Oh. Also, the kids really enjoyed seeing it cross the sky.

It is very cool to see. God even speaks to me when I'm watching it here. :)

Very super-cool :) It rarely occurs to me to actually try to look for those things when the opportunity comes up.
