ISS Caught by Sharjah Observatory



SCASS Observatory specialist Mr. Mohamed Fadil Talafha was able to get a rare glimpse view at the International Space Station as it crossed the Sun early morning on Tuesday, May 15, 2018. Using the 18 cm SCASS telescope in white light, Talafha caught ISS crossing the Sun around 06:38 am. Seeing was a little bit bad, and the Sun was only about 13 degrees above the eastern horizon. What made this picture exceptional is that the duration of the transit was only 1.83 seconds.
