ISS over the Moon – January 28, 2018

Scroll down to content

Another ISS transit over the Moon. And another one is occurring tomorrow…Hope to catch that one also..

Together with a few other transit amateurs, I went not too far from home, on muddy terrain, to catch this event with the 14 inch scope. I was aiming at fine structural details on the ISS, but the local conditions (cirrus clouds and poor seeing) did not allow for good shots.

Some shots before the event:
