Santa Cruz Mountains, CA
The ISS and star trails over Santa Cruz CA, taken from the Santa Cruz Mountains. Mag -3.4, bright! And fast, crossed the sky faster than the 2 planes in the shot even though it is so much further away. Merged 10 x 10 sec exposures at ISO 1600 16mm f2.8. Flew from just above the horizon to almost overhead at 70 deg to disappear behind me at 35 degrees above the other horizon. Fun to watch!
