Science in the Sky
Science in the Sky
Taken over 111 seconds this is a view of the International Space Station, it glides over our heads almost every night, two to three times. This was the 23.10pm fly over taking about 4 minutes to pass over. Having taken this picture 23:10-23:13pm at the time of writing (23.30pm) it is already over India, speed is 17227 mph.
It is very bright, its massive solar panels reflecting off the sun (average magnitude is -2). Not only is it the most expensive thing ever built (100 billion euros) it is the home of several astronauts for 6 months at a time.
