International Space Station (ISS) passing over Kilchoman, Isle of Islay

Picture of a space station pass in the night skyDuring April 2015 the International Space Station (ISS) was passing over Scotland. One evening (Sunday 12/Apr/2015 to be precise) I set up just outside of Kilchoman Church to capture a pass over Islay. Unfortunately I was interrupted by a passing car just as the ISS started to appear, but luckily managed to still capture the majority of the pass. This is a composite of 14 images covering approximately 2 minutes, hence the movement of the stars resulting in short startrails as well.

  1. I check it almost every evening – 2-6 minutes passes on a clear night – simply outstanding.  People are up there in that tiny space station… for a year!  Mind-boggling for someone who remembers the first Sputnik very clearly.
