Triple shadow transit on Jupiter. A rare case of three moons — Io, Europa, and Callisto — casting their tiny black shadows onto Jupiter at the same time happens late, from 4:32 to 5:37 Universal Time October 12th (12:32 to 1:37 a.m. Saturday morning Eastern Daylight Time). Jupiter will be high and best placed for telescope users in Europe and Africa, and low in the east for eastern North America.

Anyone seen Gravity, the movie? Very cool. Two space shuttles in there.

This picture is overexposed. It was completely unattended (I was at a soccer game). Stacked them in software just now. There was a 10 second gap between exposures, hence the ISS disappears a bit there.

I've been spotting the space station for the last week or so. I don't see a "streak" or a "line" as some of the pictures in this thread show. Instead, I see a solid moving "star" that moves across the sky at a pretty good clip, only to disappear right around when the time predicts. Is that what everyone else is seeing? Or are you seeing "streaks" and "straight lines" formed by the space station? I want to make sure I'm actually seeing the space station, and not something else

Yeah, streaks are coming from long exposures...

The thing does look like a bright star moving faster than an airplane at an elevation much higher than an airplane but much lower than most satelites...

That picture above is actually two photos combined. Each photo was a 3 minute exposure. Over 3 minutes, the shutter on my camera was left open. The result is a streak. Even the stars are streaks there. there was a 10-second period between exposures. That's why a blank spot in the ISS streak.

I probably should have gone with a faster exposure (or stopped the lens aperture down) since the pic came out a little bright.

Quick shot of the ISS moving past the moon. The ISS is the vertical streak. The horizontal streak is an airplane that unfortunately made an appearance.

Nice photo! Is that how large the SS appears or is that the camera causing that?

haha. I just uploaded a slightly clearer version of the pic. The vertical streak is the ISS.

It wasn't very bright tonight. Not sure why, the moon was very bright.
