International Space Station (ISS) At Twilight

At 6pm this evening an email came through from alerting me of the ISS passing over at 6:20pm. A quick look outside and there was a nice orange glow to the twilight. I checked the path of the ISS and it was approaching from the North West and passing to the South East, straight across my view of the twilight.

I set the camera up in the garden with some Yucca Plants to frame the shot and waited.

Soon enough, the bright ISS came into frame. I took four 20 second shots and merged them together to create this image of the light streak as it flies over head at 27600kmh, yes that’s almost 8km every second!
