The International Space Station, 31 July 2012
After a long period where we couldn't see the ISS from Adelaide, it has now returned to the evening skies.
Below is an animation I made with 20 x 4 second shots. Would have been better if I had remembered the "autoshoot" feature takes 30 seconds to fire up.
In the original AVI, you can see a second satellite following the ISS in the final frames.
There is a heavens above Android smart phone app which I use all the time when photographing these things, and one from spaceweather http://simpleflybys.com/ for iPhone and Android
