ISS Transits Observed over Plant City, Florida

The viewing conditions in high humidity Florida were pretty good this morning - for viewing the ISS passage is it passed from NW to NE to SE.  Maximum was at 05:55 at 88 degrees

This morning there was a bright passage of the International Space Station which I was able to photograph and capture with video.

Here is a still shot (20 sec exposure) as it passes to the left of Orion

A control image - an aircraft passing near by show blinking green and red lights.  The ISS has no visible running lights and appears as only dot of reflected sunlight
