How do you know that's what it is, it could be the latest "prism" offering.

Whoa, why has my pic disappeared? It's still the correct link and still showing up on another site correctly.

Tried two different hosts and neither worked, had to upload as an attachment

This is very cool!! I had hoped to get a view and a picture on my side of the pond last week but the weather did not cooperate. Really great shot!

Thanks, I had the same problem the next night.

Went to a local reservoir with my daughter to get a good shot at 23:30 when the next high pass was due.

I was looking for the glow from the city in the west about 20 miles away + a little thin cloud to get the colour + reflections in the water + a nice long trail in a portrait shot.

There was too much cloud and I got cocky thinking that I could estimate where the ISS trail would be in the shot. In fact I got it just passing out of shot in the top left corner.

A rubbish picture, but at least I got to appreciate the quietness, my daughter's company, the clouds of bats coming to look at us and the sounds of all the little animals (critters ) around us in the dark.
