We had an extra bright flyover of the International Space Station on Friday evening.  It was a gorgeous warm night with a full moon rising.  As I was taking the pictures, I could hear mama owl singing by the pond.  For better photography next time, I’m looking forward to a nice dark night so that I can take a longer exposure.  If you want to see the Space Station, check flyover times at: http://spotthestation.nasa.gov/ Remember that the Space Station emits a bright continuous light (the reflection from the solar panels), and airplanes emit flashing lights.

They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.

    The moon and stars are signals God is just ahead. Smile!

  2. Fascinating shots and info! What an experience – and what a scene this conjures up, to imagine the sound of the owl in the background!
