Excellent.  I'll certainly try and catch that pass.  Thanks for the tip off ;)

Yes - good photo challenge - haven't decided yet to try for one frame with DSLR or webcam video and try to extract a single frame as a still - DSLR is better quality but chances of actually catching it are much higher with the webcam.


Anyway given the forecast it might all just be a waste of time - looks pretty dreich here tomorrow night :-(

I just got a photo tonight of the ISS light trail just so I can say I captured it  :P


Best thing I saw though was my first iridium flare about 5 minutes later which was actually quite an impressive sight.
