Friday Islay Picture #385 - ISS over Loch Indaal

Friday Islay Picture in stencil

Yay, finally a Friday Islay picture again! About time, I hear you say, and you would be right. I really have to do better with blogging here. Anyway, before I get to a new Friday Islay picture something else: Happy birthday to my sister Imke! Some of you will have met her during her Islay visits, so I think she deserves a mention here. Apart from the fact that she's a great sister to have of course. But now on to the picture:

It's not the greatest picture, but it also turned out better than I had hoped, so I've decided to publish it. It was really still too light for good pictures (this is a composite picture of 38 individual pictures), but I decided to give it a go anyway when the ISS passed over Islay in April 2016. The view is south over Loch Indaal from Port Charlotte pier, the ISS was passing from right to left.

Of course there's also another reason for posting this picture tonight: The ISS is passing over the UK right now. You can find the details of the June 2016 passes here. I've also come across an embedded applet provided by NASA showing the details recently, once I've understood how to embed it correctly I'll follow up with another post this weekend.

As usual I will post a larger version of the picture on the Islay Pictures photoblog on Saturday morning. Until then, happy ISS spotting and have a great weekend!

Opening up the discussion. Have your say:
