Two views of ISS

You can capture the International Space Station as a long streak crossing your sky, or you can catch it close-up. Dan Wyman in California captured both.

I’m always fascinated by the International Space Station when it comes by. Tonight, my plan was to get a long exposure of it and a close-up.

I was very happy with both shots.

I used a Sony A6000 with a Tamron 500mm mirror lens for the close-up. I used a Sony NEX 5R with a 16mm lens for the long-exposure shot.

Thank you, Dan!

Bottom line: Two views of the International Space Station that flew over Oceanside, California on February 19, 2016. Dan Wyman used a 500mm mirror lens for the second shot and a 16mm lens with a long exposure for the first shot (the streak).
