Woke up at 5:30 this morning in time to get ready to photograph the International Space Station fly by. Right on cue, it appeared in the very early morning sky at 6:19. Shot this 15 second exposure at about 6:21AM as it crossed close to the moon. A great way to start my second year in the desert.
One year ago today I moved in to my little desert hut. Took 7 days of construction and two days off to get in the barely finished box. It's come a long way since then. Was kind of creepy that first night out here but with each day it just gets better and better. Now it feels creepy to be anywhere else. Pretty rewarding to own it all and do it all yourself. Feels really good to be home. ( Note: did some visiting today and got the anemometer up and wired)
