ISSが愛媛県西条市の上空を通過
南西(239°)から現れ木星の近くを通り、北斗七星の酌を切るようにして北東(38°)へ消えてゆきました

ISSより先に通過した赤い光は上海(PVG)から関空(KIX)へ向かうJL898便 B-737-846 (JA320J)
27.550 ft を飛行しています。

I like the idea of the small gravity ring, I'm thinking mainly as an exercise area to spend hours at a time working out and pumping iron. They should add a gravity ring to ISS ASAP.

懸念していた雷雲が去り現れた太陽

写真は 11:36:39
ISS(国際宇宙ステーション)が太陽の前を通過する様子
(動画切り出し比較暗合成)
 
今回は普段太陽黒点を撮影している合成f:1200mm望遠鏡にデジイチを付けたいつもと同じシステム
 
今回はビデオモードにしたために縦の画素が少ないのと、昼間の極軸合わせがラフ過ぎて
太陽追尾がずれてしまいました。

予報中心線上に撮影ポイントが無かったので太陽の中心を捉えられませんでしたが
薄雲でコントラストが今ひとつの中、なんとかゲット出来ました

通過をマドさんグラスで見ていましたが
 わかりませんでした
 
この経験を次回に生かします

※ 動画の仕上げは夜なります

Magnetic Putty: Mesmerizing Primarily Because It Defies Gravity.
Join the Simple Science and Interesting Things Community and share interesting stuff!
https://plus.google.com/communities/117518490246975838002

In modern physics, gravity is most accurately described by the general theory of relativity (proposed by Einstein) which describes gravity as a consequence of the curvature of spacetime. For most applications gravity is well approximated by Newton's law of universal gravitation, which postulates that the gravitational force of two bodies of mass is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them

About this community

Since the launch of Zarya, the first module of the ISS, on 20 November 1998, five space agencies have worked together to build the orbiting science lab—one of the most complex scientific and technological endeavours ever undertaken. On 20 November 2013, celebrate with us as we launch a world-wide wave to cheer the ISS! Starting at midnight GMT—the official time zone of the ISS—the European Space Agency (ESA), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) are launching a world-wide wave for ISS. Join the wave by following the hashtag #ISS15! Keep the wave rolling by telling us what the ISS—its science, technology and astronauts—means to you. Head outside and see the space station for yourself. If you're lucky enough to photograph it, share your photo by tagging it with #ISS15. It's your space station, and it's your turn to get involved! How will you do the world-wide wave?

ISSの通過を来島海峡にて撮影(通過時刻は 20:1020:17)
開始10秒くらいに画面上部を右から左に通過します。

残念ながら雲が多くしかも3層の問答雲で全経過を見ることが出来ませんでした

動画は17:4521:17迄を3秒間隔でタイムラプス撮影
合計1484枚を残像75%で比較明合成

月齢14.3の明るい月には時折 高積雲に虹色光環
月の左下には土星が写っています

21:0221:14 に月をかすめるようにEnvisat (エンビサット 欧州宇宙機関)が通過しましたが
月明かりと雲で判別できませんでした
(RAW画像を調整すると見えるかも)

ISSの日面通過を動画撮影成功

焦点距離を欲張ったので太陽の下が少し欠けましたが、良い感じに撮影出来ました
太陽は日周運動による東西南北を北を上にして撮影
地平に対するISSの軌道は左上から右下となっています

連続画像は動画から切り出し、比較暗合成しています。

18日にISSのリブートが予定されていましたが、Androidアプリ、ISS通過予測 による予測は正確に出ていて
今回、青線の真下は良い場所が無く、200m程西にある施設の駐車場をお借りしましたがほぼ真ん中、通過時間もピッタリでした。

次回はいつになるか、楽しみです。

今朝のISS 月面通過の画像が仕上がりました
6コマ/sで連写したうちの
04:34:23~04:34:24 9コマを比較明合成しました
(タイムスタンプはO-GPSでマーク)

予測中心線より50m程北西で撮影しましたが、計算の正確さがわかります
(予測はEd Morana のAndroidアプリ ISS通過予測 を使用)

今週、私のエリアでは土星と太陽面の通過があります
天気次第ですが、太陽面通過は動画で撮影してみます。

Worms hitch a ride aboard the ISS
You could be forgiven for thinking that worms have little in common with us humans, yet astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti has been conducting science aboard the International Space Station involving tiny nematode worms (roundworms) to help better understand the effects of space on the human body.

22日のISS
 
まだ西ソラでは美の競演が続いている20:06
南西からISS登場
高度と光度を上げながら天頂を通り20:10過ぎ
南東の空高いところでスッと消えました
 
もう少し左にカメラを向けていたらと・・
 
画面ひだりの妙な光はハレ切り失敗で街灯や走る車のライトによるハレーションです
 
次回への反省点
 
仮眠を終えたのでこれから こと座流星群の撮影にでかけます。
