A few images of the ISS taken today. First image taken in rear garden, then run to the front of the house and still had time to bag another image further down the Close.

Great shots Anton. I hope you don't mind me adding to your thread, I was going to start one myself but hadn't got around to it yet. Your pass was much higher in the sky than here last evening, the 25th. It was barely visible over the rooftops.

Thanks all, Richard love your star filled sky makes so much difference to see the ISS in totally dark sky’s, at the time of my shot the sky was not truly dark still very enjoyable to observe.

Thanks

Thanks Mark, John Paul and Anton, there was barely a glint of light left in the west which along with the lights from town helped to illuminate the clouds a bit.
