Hey Anton, sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I love this image of the ISS and your car in the same frame, you must have had a great wide angle lens for that - impressive!. What you witnessed sounded like a sporadic fireball, fireballs can be extremely bright and also very low in the sky at times so you can get them pretty much anywhere in the celestal dome so well done on seeing it, a truly bright fireball is a thrilling and unforgettable sight, you will be hooked from now on and will be trying to catch one on camera  Smiley

Been busy lately and not home very much so sorry for the lack of posts recently. I was at the coast on quite a few occasions and saw some pretty decent sunset scenes. All are from Downhill Beach, lovely glitter path and sunset convective cloud reflections, even saw distant lightning over the sea.

Great space station shot Anton! 

Definitely sounds like it was a fireball to me, could be an earthgrazer.  What time did it take to cross your sky?  I didn't see anything here, has there been anything on local news I wonder...

Great shot off the ISS and your car, you're getting good at this. The object you saw was most likely a sporadic meteor (fireball), a very lucky sight. It was coming from the wrong direction for a Perseid.
We're here in Southern California now, 100 degrees F, smoggy, just like I remember it. Start looking for houses tomorrow. I already miss walking outside and seeing the Milky Way, lol.

Thanks Anton & John for your kind words Smiley   I just wish the cloud would break for long enough to get a decent spell of sun viewing in...
