ISS AND MILKY WAY Taken by Malcolm Park on March 23, 2017 @ West Lake, Ontario
Heres an early spring image with a late winter feel.
The lake had thawed out in February, but we have been in a deep freeze lately and it froze back over.
The ISS sailed by this morning at 5:40am in a slightly washed out sky with the waning (24%) crescent moon and dawn just starting to break.
This is a composite of 12 thirty second exposures.
I shot the ISS using my tracking mount to keep the stars sharp and avoid any trailing, and the result was the slight arc in the path of the ISS.
If you look carefully at the tracks in the ice, you can see where the coyotes have been roaming!
