Summer Sky

Finding pleasure on a warm summer evening while sheltering in place. Turning our gaze upward in search of the comet, stars, satellites, and the International Space Station. These uplifting occurrences reassure us of the creative pursuits and scientific genius of humanity. This 30 second exposure captures the football-field-sized ISS as a dot of light streaking across the sky, during a six minute window of visibility traveling at 5 miles per second.
