|The ISS passes though Orion and by the bright star Sirius at 21:13 ACDST. Stack of 12 images in ImageJ, 2 second exposures, 800 ASA, Canon IXUS (click to embiggen).||Animation of all 12 images from previous shot (click to embigen)|
Tonights ISS pass of this International Space Station pass series, sky absolutely clear again. This pass occurred in the twilight, but the ISS was still was brilliant and easy to see as it passed through Orion and close to Sirius. The gap in the series is when the the image automatic sequence finished and I had to continue manually. The ISS passed over Bellatrix.
