Rarer than transits generally, tonight ISS passed over the moon but illuminated by the recently set sun which meant I could photograph the pass with colour detail rather than a silhouette like my previous transit photos. I’ve never done this before so was super excited to get it in great clarity!

Taken tonight from the backyard observatory in Byron Bay @ 17:51:07s using C9.25″ Edge HD / F10 / Canon 70D / ISO 1800 / 1/1600s – 7 Frames

I’ve already been addressed by space / moon / nasa deniers who think this is fake (haha!) so here are the RAW unprocessed images for you to download. Normal (ie not retarded) people can also download these for their own processing pleasure as they wish :

The zoomed in detail of the ISS is quite nice :

Also you may have heard I just finished organising and running the first “Star Stuff” festival in Byron Bay where an amazing line up of speakers and 400+ attendees came together for an amazing weekend of astronomy and stargazing in Byron Bay. To say it was enjoyable is a huge understatement. As the organiser I was able to insert myself into the proceedings and here is a great photo of all the speakers by Kirra Pendergast :
