Title: ISS - Visual Snapshots and Video
Post by: stockman on 03/31/2010 02:12 pm
Starting this thread to have a place to put the un-ending collection of wonderful video and snapshot pictures that the Camera's on the ISS continue to feed to us every day. It is not my intention to clutter up any other threads so it seems logical to start a dedicated one and have it run for as long as the pictures keep coming.

The only rule that I can see for this thread is that anyone can post and as long as it is  OF or FROM the ISS it is all good...

STS-131 ISS pass before liftoff (video) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEfKOIx_gfY)
Heh, Google's experimental transcribing totally failed on the radio chat (did well for the announcer...).

It sounds like (at about 1:30) someone is saying:
"ms1 and ms4 are dissing, activate v10 recorders" (at least that's what it sounded like)
Google thought she said:
"and that's what we look for a different group the independent voters"
*laugh*

EDIT: or this one at 2:24:
Actual:"OTC?" "OTC is go"
Google: "but the the political playbook"

Google thinks all that NASA talks about is politics! *laugh* (Well, it seems like that here on NSF's forums...)

Can anyone tell me what this is?  That little dot on the left in these ISS images from tonight is in the same spot on every image I took even though the ISS is all over the frame.  In other words, it's not a hot pixel and it's not an optical effect.  No matter how much I push these images I can see no connection between the dot and the ISS in these images, or any of the others I took.
Title: Re: ISS - Visual Snapshots and Video
Post by: Hungry4info3 on 05/18/2010 04:49 am
You may not be able to see a connection, but based on your knowledge of the ISS structure,  you know one must be there.

It's either part of the Russian segment or a docked Russian spacecraft.

I have a hard time determining orientation from images like these.  Can someone with more experience tell me what would be at that end of ISS when these were taken last night?

First off Jay Lee - Great shot - thanks for posting...

I have looked at this and if my geometry is right (and I am open to being corrected) I think the white dot you are seeing is the rear end of the Soyuz as Hungry4info3 alluded to... The end of it is White as per the picture below and the rest of the spacecraft is dark material - that would give the illusion of a white dot with nothing connecting it to Structure under the right lighting conditions... At least that is my guess...
Title: Re: ISS - Visual Snapshots and Video
Post by: Lee Jay on 05/18/2010 01:46 pm
Ah...thanks.  So, in my image, that would make the bright spot to the right an down from the truss the JEM, and the gray splotch to the right the bottom of Atlantis?  That would put the Russian segment in the background and the Soyuz at the tip.

I picked it up and imaged it while overhead but there is no relative motion to show. Here are two images with a tree in my front yard to show the movement. (The other ones came out blurry, dang it!!!)  It's a very small blurry light at the top of each image.

[update]I've cropped and merged the two images to show the movement.

Oh my word. I'm just viewing these photos now. How beautiful.

I'm impressed with the exposure, to get the station structure and the nighttime Earth illuminated so well together. In photo 3, it appears that there was a full moon (or close to it) above, noted by the light falling across the Soyuz and the MRM-1. Really something.

I found this picture from Steve Marple on FLickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemarple/5490215464/) and searched on Flickr a bit more to find this encouragment (http://www.flickr.com/photos/stevemarple/5490215464/) but was not really succesful today. Somebody tried it as well? I used a Canon 50d + 250mm lens and the stars around the ISS were sharp and visible. But there was not really a structure visible.
I really would like to make the next step following these pictures from the docking of Discovery last weekend (1 (http://hempel71.net/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/img_2252s.jpg),2 (http://hempel71.net/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/img_2242s.jpg))

Todays pass was the last good one before the departure of Discovery and the last bright one for the winter season over Europe. So, I gave it a try and made some shots of the ISS again with the megazoom.

While the ISS was a large spot of several pixels in square there was not really a structure. Maybe there was some more brownish around and something white and triangle shaped in the centre, but I think it is more some wishful interpreting. I think, the optical resolution of the zoom is not sufficient, so its time for a good telezoom + converter (what I need anyway for the main application of the lens). If these are stars in the background (and not dust on the chip) the focus was right (manual mode).

ISS Crew Monitors the Territory of Japan. The Images to be Downloaded in a Couple of Days – MCC-M.

Starting from Friday, Russian crew of the International Space Station monitors the territory of Japan, following the order of the Mission Control Center, MCC-M expert told ITAR-TASS.
According to him, the images will be downloaded in a couple of days.
"Remote sensing satellites provide better resolution than the cameras onboard the ISS. On the other hand, the cosmonauts can make zooming needed to estimate natural disaster consequences for larger territories”, the expert explained.
Russia has been running Uragan (Hurricane) experiment onboard the station for many years. The experiment implies monitoring of natural and industrial disasters.

Berlin at night

This picture was taken by ESA astronaut André Kuipers from the International
Space Station (ISS) and was first shown at the ISS Symposium 2012 in Berlin.

The former division between East and West Berlin can be seen. The yellow
lights correspond to East Berlin and the greener tones show West Berlin. Over
20 years since the Berlin Wall was dismantled the effects of separating the
city can still be seen from space.

The picture was taken using a new camera aid called NightPod. Nightpod tracks
the Earth automatically as it moves below the Space Station resulting in
images that are sharper and have more detail.

RELEASE: 12-384

SPOT THE SPACE STATION OVER YOUR BACKYARD WITH NEW NASA SERVICE

WASHINGTON -- On the 12th anniversary of crews continuously living and
working aboard the International Space Station, NASA announced Friday
a new service to help people see the orbiting laboratory when it
passes overhead. "Spot the Station" will send an email or text
message to those who sign up for the service a few hours before they
will be able to see the space station.

"It's really remarkable to see the space station fly overhead and to
realize humans built an orbital complex that can be spotted from
Earth by almost anyone looking up at just the right moment," said
William Gerstenmaier, NASA's associate administrator for human
exploration and operations. "We're accomplishing science on the space
station that is helping to improve life on Earth and paving the way
for future exploration of deep space."

When the space station is visible -- typically at dawn and dusk -- it
is the brightest object in the night sky, other than the moon. On a
clear night, the station is visible as a fast moving point of light,
similar in size and brightness to the planet Venus. "Spot the
Station" users will have the options to receive alerts about morning,
evening or both types of sightings.

The International Space Station's trajectory passes over more than 90
percent of Earth's population. The service is designed to only notify
users of passes that are high enough in the sky to be easily visible
over trees, buildings and other objects on the horizon. NASA's
Johnson Space Center calculates the sighting information several
times a week for more than 4,600 locations worldwide, all of which
are available on "Spot the Station."

Nov. 2 marks 12 years of continuous human habitation of the space
station.

To sign up for "Spot the Station," visit:

http://spotthestation.nasa.gov

of sightings, visit:

Rome, Italy

Italy’s capital city shows a distinctive patchwork of lights and darker areas when seen from the International Space Station at night. Unlike England’s capital city, Rome’s A90 ring road, the “Grande Raccordo Anulare”, is not so visible due to different motorway lighting. No single point of interest strikes out from the patchwork of roads, parks and green areas.

Rome was famously founded along the Tiber river, seen here winding its way downwards to the bottom of the image, but even the Tiber river gets lost in the sea of light at the centre of Rome. The dark patches are parks, ancient ruins and green areas without street lighting. To the bottom right of this picture is the hilly area and regional park of Appia Antica leading into the Decima-Malafede regional park where humans have not settled. Instead Rome has expanded over the years in other directions. At the top of this picture, newer, sub-urban settlements are characterised by the straight streets.

ESA’s centre for Earth Observation at the ESRIN facility near Frascati can be seen to the right of this picture, above the blackness of Albano lake.

Clouds covered parts of Rome and caused the blurry areas at the bottom half of this picture taken 12 December 2013 by an Expedition 38 astronaut.

I found those very nice videos:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQ-f2wgZ6xo

There are parts 1 to 5. In total more than 2 hours. They are in Russian, but it was fun to watch even though I couldn't understand anything.

A lot of segments in various areas of the Russian segment give new perspective on the space station.

Quite a nice interview of the one year crew, published yesterday. They seem in a very good mood.

Scot mentiones he sometimes has a feeling he lived on the ISS his entire life. I find this interesting.

I was surprised that cosmonauts have sometimes three days of holiday. I think on USOS it is never more than one day, but have no proof.

My modest attempt at imaging ISS.

Taken two days ago, from a distance of about 700km (400 miles).

Solar panels are visible. Bright white in between the panels are due to thermal radiators, I think:

I would guess on the top left side of white blob is USOS and bottom right is Russian segment, since the blob should be whiter on the Russian side since the radiators on this side of the station.

Time magazine episodes on one year mission. Much much better than what I expected. There are currently six episodes but I think they will add more.

On the subject of ISS 360s, I came across this today - a 360-degree rendering of the ISS via the UNIGINE graphics engine.

This kind of thing is going to be pretty amazing when combined with virtual reality headsets - imagine if NASA started producing EVA overview briefing videos in 3D 360 - you'd literally be able to preview the EVA from the astronaut's perspective, like you were really there!

Another ISS 360, this time from the NBL. What I wouldn't give to dive in there...

Now we just need to find out how to get one of these cameras onto an EVA...

Slightly off-topic, but when observing ISS tonight, I saw something unusual: as the station neared the terminator (ie, as it came close to disappearing into the Earth's shadow), I noticed a little jitter, but then there was a bright, almost blinding green flash that looked like a laser pointing at me. And then the station began to fade out as it entered the shadow.

Any ideas on what that green flash was?

My guess: a reflection of this phenomenon (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_flash)
Title: Re: ISS - Visual Snapshots and Video
Post by: Danderman on 09/28/2016 08:54 pm
That is what I was thinking, some sort of green flash phenomena, since ISS was passing into the Earth's shadow. But, the green light was really blinding, kind of like a green laser like in the Frankie Goes to Hollywood video. I always thought that the terrestrial green flash was just kind of a blob of relatively dim light.  Although ISS was bright last night, the green flash was a lot brighter.

More to the point, has anyone ever reported a green flash in space?

Look at the Moon

A Full Moon is a sight to behold on or off planet. ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli didn’t miss the chance to photograph this one.

Taken from the International Space Station – its solar panels take up much of the frame – the Moon still manages to draw the eye.

 We just had a wonderful pass of the ISS right over Reston, Va!  Our neighbors turned out, too and were the first to spot it. Very clear, and we all agreed it was almost like you could see the solar panels. The trees losing a lot of leaves this last week helped with the great viewing. A very awesome sight, no-one could believe we might be "Trashing" this thing in just a few years, though... ::)
