Band (Hungary)
ISS (right) - Discovery (left) pair can be seen near the ruins of Essegvar in Hungary. There are many gaps in the startrails because of the cloudy weather. I observed Discovery just before its landing (18:25 UT). Beautiful brightening of ISS just near the castle! Note the star Vega upthere and a faint airplane right below. The red colours of the clouds are coming from the nearly village of Band. Photo details: Canon 450D, Sigma 2,8/10 objective, 18 x 15 sec at iso 1600
