Space Station Captured  
Well I had a very successful day. I managed to film the International Space Station. The day got cloudy in the afternoon but I went out anyway. I was very worried but when I pulled out my camera the clouds vanished and the day was beautiful Here is the video I managed to get.

And that's about it really. I've just been preparing all day for this and haven't done much of anything else. I did get quite the rush knowing I had captured this. I had that church parking lot all to myself. Too bad no one else knew about it though.

Blink and you miss it!

Yes exactly. It was so darn fast. I had to slow the video down three times.

At least you caught it!

And you could so easily have not gone out because of the cloud.

Parking in the church car park was a good idea!

Yes. I wish the quality had been better but I'm quite pleased with this. I'm so glad the clouds left at the perfect moment.
That's where the Transit Finder said the line would pass through so it worked out very well.

You did capture is very well.

And that was great that it was exactly where Transit Finder said it would be!

That is super cool! Such a good thing those clouds parted just in time, haha.

Thanks. It was super crazy the timing on that. I had to wear all my sun protective clothes while doing this. It was fun.

I blinked and missed it. What point is it at in the video?
Desthagirion on February 25th, 2018 01:44 am (UTC)
It happens three or four times. All the times that I show the sun close up. It's a spec.

That's awesome! I had to play it several times in order to see it but third time was the charm.

Thank you. Yes it's super tiny and fast. That's why I kept slowing it down which wasn't easy to do. Very nice to see you here again. I hope all is going well for you.

Thanks, likewise. Things have been going fairly well all things considered, class is going well and work is okay. I have quite a few days off this week so I intend on using them to my advantage.

Thanks for adding me back to your list!

Cool video! I had to watch a couple times to catch it, but it's there.
I think a cloudy day in Florida is what we call a sunny day in Washington, ha!

Hey good to see you again. No prob.

Thanks. Yeah it's small and fast. You can see it at full size better. That's why I slowed it down each time. Ha well these clouds do over up sky watching so they are bad for that. Skys have to be perfect to photogaph things like the moon, sun and stars.
