On July 23, 2004, a nice passage is expected above Quimper: ISS must cross the sky to an elevation of 78 degrees. It's about 11:30 PM, so the sky is dark blue.
In the picture, ISS is climbing quickly, coming from the west, pass by the star Cor Caroli (Alpha Canum Venaticorum) at the left of the Big Dipper. In this first exposure ((see also the second one), ISS is still pale, about magnitude 1.
I stop the pose - because the Camedia in Noise Reduction mode needs to make another 50 s exposure to substract to the previous one - and turn the camera toward the East to capture the disappearance of the Station in the Earth's Shadow.
