Tonight's ISS Pass over Florida, with a -3.9 Magnitude.

Finally got 1 shot of the ISS, got lucky, caught the big dipper in it as well.

LOL, nope, by the beach, the bottom thing is the sand and a little in the water.

It's not a very good image. the 10-22 was pointing in a completely different direction. This shot was oh no, aimed at the wrong side, quick quick, fisheye on superclamp on ballhead and hope i got something.

How do you know where in the sky it will be passing by? Or can you just see it moving?

Nice, we watched it over here in Largo. Much brighter than we expected. Didn't try to get any shots because it appeared that we had cloud cover, but this thing showed up clearly though what was really a fine haze.

Adding to Aaagogo's suggestion for tracking, http://spaceflight1.na​sa.gov/realdata/sighti​ngs/ (external link) (start the applet from within IE, as Firefox/Chrome don't work apparently), is a little more in the detail about the flight path and alt/azimuth data, as well as provides a useful skytrack/startrack. However, heaven's above is better for getting a read on the brightness.

Also, to anyone who knows, how do I read the EXIF from a photo (like the one above)?

u need to install one of the many exif plugins/addons that are out there for your browser.

Heavens-above is more technical but the huge plus is the magnitude of the pass.

neat thing about heavens above it generates these for you - this is ISS track above me, red circle is 10deg above horizon, dotted line is not visible , solid line is visible via reflecting sunlight:

plus these (well this is for Iridium flare, but similar info for ISS):

Aaagogo, were you saying to read EXIF I need a plug-in, or to view the NASA spaceflight website?

As for the NASA site, I like the charts it generates (below), but I'll have to check out the Heaven's above ones, too, now.

These charts are super accurate and help me align my shot before the ISS passes. Amazingly since using these I've gotten exactly what I was after, whereas before it was a guessing game more often than not.

From one site, it says this about my location (LaPorte, IN)
ISS
Fri Apr 30/08:37 PM
4 duration
86 elevation
16 above SW 17 above NE

ISS
Fri Apr 30/10:14 PM
1 duration
17 elevation
17 above NNW 15 above N

How do I figure out the last parts Ex: 17 above NNW 15 above N

I searched but couldnt find alittle tutorial on how to read this.

to read image exif data, you need a browser plugin or addon.

i'm slowly starting to use a couple of programs, along with my new google phone and the stars program on my google phone to pin point the exact path of the ISS fly by.

the big advantage of heavens-above is the magnitude. different magnitude, different settings, if the magnitude is above a certain level, i don't even bother.
