The ISS pass on June 30, 2017

The ISS passing just above Canopus on 30 June, 2017. The ISS was around magnitude -2.4. Stack of 9 images in Deep Sky Stacker (one frames was dropped buring stacking, 5 second exposures 400 ASA with an ageing Canon IXUS) Animation of all 10 images I missed the more spectacular June 29 pass due to clouds and rain. Still a very nice pass through a nice piece of sky. It looks clear for tonight, which will be a bright Pass just below the Southern Cross, and hopefully Monday, where the ISS will almost pas on top of Sirius then just below Canopus.
