ISS - 19.7.2021 at 00.50 - 19.7.2021 at 00.56 Joensuu Observation number 99737

Visibility III / V

Antti Taskinen, Joensuun Seulaset

Yesterday I visited the International Space Station for the first time ever. It was well visible, but the shooting settings at the time didn’t quite hit the button to capture the flight path of the ISS despite two different attempts. Today, things went better, and as a bonus, there were illuminating night clouds in the sky in addition to the usual clouds. The main image covers the time range from 0:52 to 0:56. The ISS is that long dashed line in the lower sky, and to its left are the streaks of Saturn and Jupiter. Time is also comfortably distinguished by stars, e.g., the bright Kotka Altair Saturn right up and to the right another bright star at the Snake Carrier's Rasalhague, illuminating the night cloud belt. The second image is a single shot at 0:55, with the ISS approximately halfway through the image. Third, timelapse animation from 0:50 to 0:56.
