International Space Station, Saturn and Spica
Yes, I know they are actually sideways, it's a blogger thing, they are the right way around in GIMP and other image viewers.
Monday's ISS pass was completely clouded out, and Wednesday night's looked pretty sad too, then at least enough clouds cleared to get a decent stab at it. The early part of the ISS rise near Venus was clouded out, but it briefly appeared near Mars and Regulus, then brightening considerably slid under Saturn, the off for a close encounter with Spica. Sadly, the button on my Cannon IXUS seem to have been designed for squid, so by the time I pressed the "go" button it had moved past Spica. Still, a very nice pass indeed.
