    Default Sunset ISS pass



    This evening gave me a beautiful clear sky, with not a cloud in sight. It was very nice to see the perfect sky with the glow of the sunset in the west, the Moon and Jupiter close to eachother in the southwest (with the Moon exhibiting the best display of Earthshine I have ever seen), and then the ISS shooting out of the blue to cross the gently glowing sky. The first photo shows it crossing close to the Moon and Jupiter, and the second and third show it setting behind the trees. All are 30 second exposures:
