ISS (International Space Station) Fly By pics

(A shot of the planet Venus above)

The station came into view growing brighter and brighter as she reflected the suns light. Here she passes by Venus in this pic
She passed directly overhead making it a little hard to shoot.

She moved on into the northeastern sky slowly losing the suns reflection and then she vanished. (the lights in the lower left are from an airliner caught in the shot)
This is the first time I had ever seen the station before. It is visible several times a year. Cant wait til the next time!!

I will be down there at Cape Canaveral at the 12th of February to see the launch of the Shuttle. I'm very excited and hope I will be able to do some acceptable pictures :)
