The ISS pass of Sunday 6 January 2019

International Space Station pass near Taurus and ALdebaran, Sunday 6 January at 20:01 ACDST. 10 images from my CANON IXUS, ASA 800 2 seconds exposure, stacked in DeepSky Stacker (only 8 of the 10 images made it into the final stack for some reason). click to embiggenAnimation of all 10 frames in stacked in ImageJ.

January started slowly astronomy wise. Cloud, followed by cloud, followed by more cloud. But last night was finally clear, and I was able to see the ISS gliding across the Sky, past Phoenix then going between the Hyades (the head of of Taurus the bull) and the Pleiades. A magnificent sight.

Naturally it was cloudy tonight for the next bright ass of the series.
