Amazing!!
I wasn't aware it was as easy to see in that much detail from Earth.

I've always waited for the moment when we would be able to see the ISS from the ground with the naked eye. This vid, is just as cool.

That's what they use to say in the 90s during those commercials about NASA.

S'd & F'd.

Thanks! You can see ISS with your naked eye, not like this of course, but it is amazingly bright.

Nice video. You just might give Thierry Legault a run for the money when it comes to this type of photography.

Sigh, you won't be seeing either of those in the sky much longer. Shuttle today, ISS in 2014.

S+F for the memories dude.... for the memories.

This is very cool! Thank you.

The ISS is truly an amazing feat of engineering, and to see it filmed from the ground this nicely really "brings it home".

Very nice.

Thanks for bringing such a good shot. Incredible.

it's amazing you can capture this from earth without a telescope

If, and this is a VERY big "if," the weather cooperates tomorrow morning I'll do it again. It would be about 5 hours after the shuttle undocks from the space station for the final time, so it would be one of the final, if not the final, video showing both the shuttle and the space station.

I'm always amazed at what people can capture with the right equipment and expertise. I know absolutely nothing about photography and am always impressed as all hell with things like this. To think there were people up there, right then, hurtling around the Earth. And you captured it briefly on film. Possibly for the last time ever.

I hope that felt as amazing to you doing it you as it does to me watching it. Thank-you so much for sharing this with all of us.

It's the International Space Station and the shuttle is docked to it. This footage was taken from the ground in daytime. Yes, from the ground right into space...in daytime. He took this footage as it passed over his area.

Awesome, totally awesome video! Wow!

It's funny you should say that; no matter how many times I track ISS or the shuttle, I get butterflies every single time. And every time it appears as I'm tracking it, there's a sense of euphoria.

I can't stop watching that clip, it's awesome.
So I went to your YouTube channel to see if there is more.
And it is...



ETA: You have got to watch that clip through, it gets awesome in the middle and your jaw will be dropped to the floor in the end.

That's some very high praise, thank you! Legault is the king of spacecraft photography. He started off with a strong focus on solar transits, and that's what he's still best known for, but when he does direct tracking it's usually the best there is. He listed his equipment some time ago, but based on the increase in quality seen in his direct tracking in the last few missions, as well as a credit given to another amateur who assisted with his automated tracking system I believe he's now using something else entirely he doesn't explicitly describe. Probably doesn't want others to know his secret (indeed he probably makes money off his images seeing as how he's been published in 2 books already), but he's clearly getting nearly diffraction limited images. Thus far the only thing I've seen from him for this mission has been his classic solar transit image technique though.

And there goes the "10 second blurry UFO proof"!

Again, awesome footage!

Well, this is just amazing! Years ago I was fortunate enough to step out my front door, just in time to see one of the shuttle's pass directly overhead and at extremely low altitude, on its way to landing in Florida. I'll live with that image forever, but this video is undoubtedly, right up there on my scale of "remarkable". Thanks!

Holy crap! That is the coolest thing I've seen in awhile! It has never even occurred to me to every try that.
S&f for you genius!
