Ok, it was definitely the International Space Station that I saw last night because I saw it again tonight at the predicted time.
Check out this picture I took of it:
Ok, I didn't actually take that. But I could of, if I was closer. This image was taken only two days ago, presumably by the Space Shuttle that was
docked there and just left, hence the close orbits that they shared over the last couple of days.
I took this one tonight with my Nikon and 70 mm lens. With a little imagination it almost looks the same as the one above:
I took another interesting shot of Jupiter. Actually you can't see Jupiter in this frame, it's off screen on the bottom right, but check out the
mysterious triangular image in the top left of this picture:
Strange uh? When I took this picture it was flashing and moving towards the airport. Could be anything, I suppose. Perhaps a Censsa or maybe even a
Lear. Whatever it was, it's definitely an 'unidentified' flying object.
Even though there was no Space Shuttle tonight, it apparently landed in California today, the ISS alone was enough to get my whole family out there in
the back field tonight. Much to my 13 year old's chagrin and protests, he could've been at home on the Internet after all.
So we're going to get another show just like this in Vancouver on Sunday night at 8:15 PM. Hopefully the weather will be as nice as tonight was.
