Hi All

I think this will be of interest to a few on here first the full frame then a crop from that.

Full Picture

Plane From Space

While taking some pictures of the Earth from the ISS a plane was in the field of view.


The photograph was made possible with a Nikon D4 camera and an 1150mm lens.

Yet they couldn't find mh370, right.

What does this have to do with ISS being able to take a pic of a plane that was visible?

For those of you having trouble spotting it.

I think (hope) he was being sarcastic. Cool pic WMD! There must be so many like this...

They just captured one?


How many planes fly each day in the world?

The report shows that there are 37.4 million flights scheduled in 2014! That is up 2.7% from 2013. And it means an average of 102,465 flights per day.

Captured = saw i the picture n this case


Still cool

That is cool, however I am very interested in what these random, very faint yet identical circles are in the pic. I highlighted them all in red squares. There is also a random square patch that I highlighted as well...again, they are very faint but they are there and seem identical. Anyone have any idea what they are?

The odd square is the one close to the center of the pic. The rest are identical circles.

Here is a link to the same high res pic with my markups on it.

Well, well, the airliners are even spreading toxic "chemtrails" in desolate areas. (hehe)
Sorry, I couldn't resist.

They're probably sink holes. They look like smaller incarnations of the Great Blue Hole.

I don't know why anyone would have trouble spotting it I think the red circle gives it away.

I think those are just dust or dirt specks on the window.

They look like dust on the image sensor to me.They show up more the higher the F number that's used to take the photo.

They capture them all the time, you just have to actually look, especially near airports.

*Here, a much clearer example (higher focal length, more zoom) near Dulles:

Minor correction:

That's Floyd Bennett Field, a municipal airport in Brooklyn, across Jamaica Bay from JFK Airport.



But, yeah -- every image of the Earth from ISS would show planes if the resolution of the image was good enough and the focal length was high enough. For the most part, though, planes would not be detectable in a normal ISS image taken from 250 miles away from those planes.

I see jets in the sky all the time.

Duly noted. I thought it was listed in the NASA astronaut photo database as Dulles but I think I clicked on the wrong photo.

Well there are jets in many of the ISS images taken with sufficiently high focal length, particularly around airports (high focal length means smaller field of view so more likely to miss them in more sparsely populated regions even if there's direct line of sight to many different planes at any given time). Again, you just have to know where to look for them. If you do, you'll find them, I found the above two examples in just a couple minutes of searching and I'm sure I could find plenty more.
