Just happened.  The brightest I have ever seen, and I've seen a bunch.  It came, oh so close to crashing into Vega.  Really nice.  Peace be to all onboard.

Same here; also in Tulsa.  Paused "Game of Thrones" to take a look.

Read the article. The earth doesn't "forget to hide" the sun...

The weather has been anything but uncooperative for viewing the shuttle this week in Denver - we got 6" of snow last night so it looks like I missed out on this marathon.

 

I was going through my old photos and came across this one I took of a 2007 ISS pass where the Shuttle had recently detached from the station and the two were flying in tandem.  I can't recall whether the shuttle was in the lead or trailing.  My best guess would be that after separating, the shuttle would move to a lower, hence faster orbit, and move into the lead.  Would this be correct?  Perhaps one of you knows how or where I can look to figure this out.

 

Thanks

Here is shot from last night as it was approaching Lyra.  Taken with a 14mm Samyang lens on a Canon 5D MKII.

Here are photos of ISS passes on June 1 & 2.  The photos are stacks of 30 sec exposures so the gaps you see in the trail is the time between successive exposures.

Saw my first pass of the ISS just last week.  Brighter than expected and very cool.  Chris
