Photographing the International Space Station from Your Own Backyard

 

Written by Lori Keith
NASA’s Johnson Space Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationHouston, TX – Photographing the International Space Station seems like something that could be done only from space, but taking a picture from your own backyard actually is easier than you might think.

If you have the right equipment, capturing your own photo of the space station from your hometown can be almost as easy as tracking it, and definitely more satisfying. NASA photographer Lauren Harnett, who took these photos, explained her technique for photographing the station with the moon as the background. But you can choose just about any landmark that is special to you to put in the foreground, as long as you’re careful to ensure the lighting conditions are right.

Multiple images of the International Space Station flying over the Houston area have been combined into one composite image to show the progress of the station as it crossed the face of the moon in the early evening of Jan. 4th. (Photo credit: NASA)
