Photo of the Week for October 4, 2013
Throughout much of the year, the International Space Station (ISS) is often visible shortly after sunset and just before sunrise. During the summer months, when darkness is relatively short, the ISS is sometimes seen throughout the entire night. Bill Luongo captured the ISS while in Lindsay, Ontario, during an extremely bright flyover and was fortunate enough to have a mild aurora occurring at the same time. He used a tripod-mounted Canon T3 equipped with an Opteka 6mm lens to take this 30-second exposure at f/3.5 and ISO 3200.
