ISS Jupiter and an Iridium Flare

Recommended Posts

Just been outside to watch the overflight of the ISS and just as it was flying above Jupiter in the south there was an Iridium Flare beneath Jupiter - what a coincidence!

One for the logbook for sure.

Stupidly I had the wrong Apature settings, so didnt get a bright image as it went across Jupiter. However I did get this .. Out of focus as I moved the camera to change position

I got to check my pics then.

I was only taking short exposures though so I'm not too hopeful for both.

Ahh right, I was actually looking for that one too while I was faffing around but I think I missed it.
