First… I’m not that crazy about this image as a whole. BUT – I got the space station! So here it is…
I was out on the town this evening, just taking pictures when I happened to see a bright light moving across the sky. As I watched, I realized it was definitely a satellite. A quick check of my nifty GoSatWatch app on my iPhone confirmed my suspicions… I was watching the International Space Station cruise over Athens. Great angle, too. Directly over the courthouse I was shooting (at least from my angle). This isn’t such a great HDR, but I had to put it out there just to show the space station overhead.
You might need to view the largest size to really see the line across the sky, but it’s definitely there. 6:35pm central time, flying over east Texas from northwest to southeast. I used Flickr’s map to pinpoint the spot the picture was taken from.
The launch of the first privately built spaceship to the International Space Station is targeted for late March, but will most likely lift off in early April, a top NASA space station official said today (Feb. 2).
