Did you not read my full reply where i added Nice copy/paste edit ?? :p

I did, but was still left with the impression from your opening statement (e.g. capitalisation of NOPE!) that you were implying the image was submitted as a "real" image rather than a composite.:-)

Way too much fake news around to take the risk of not clearing the matter up formally.:-)

Wishing you all the best for 2018.

Cheers

Dennis

The only reason I replied to your post is because many newbie members always wonder if you can see the flag on the moon left by astronauts and many other times some believe when they see a well edited image of some space object that appears so big they think you can actually see it in an image or telescope . The only object ever photographed that's in space with success is the ISS . Those you can find in back log post here in this forum . So my reply was only to clarify to those that might believe that it's impossible to see the Cassini in a scope much less to be able to capture it in such a way as your edited image . Other than that if you know exactly when it passes by your location you can capture a very dim but obvious trail such as many ISS trails on the internet now .

Thanks.:-)

I took this composite of the ISS transiting the solar disc back in 2011 and one of the NASA Astronauts later e-mailed me, asking for a copy, which I gladly provided.:-)

Cheers

That would indeed be an honor to have an astronaut ask for a copy of an image/composite you made!! How did he hapen tp find out about it?

That is a very well made composite Dennis :-)

Hi Charles

The NASA Astronaut is/was a solar physicist, Shuttle Astronaut (STS-51F) and Research Manager for the ISS program at NASA and stumbled across the original post I made on the Australian Amateur Astronomy Forum (Ice In Space (external link)). He them e-mailed the Forum Admin (Mike Salway) who forwarded his enquiry to me.

The composite image also appeared (in 2011) on SpaceWeather (external link), a Sun/Earth environment website.

Dennis
