Update 1: In case you’re wondering, the bright star in the top-left is Arcturus – α Boo, the brightest star on the northern celestial hemisphere (positive declination).
As I was watching the Space Shuttle Endeavour launch NASA TV live coverage, I stepped briefly outside and took a few photos of the ISS fly-b. My tripod obviously isn’t that good with long(er) exposures so this time made a series of 2s takes as well.
