I get it.  You were talking about right ascension and declination.  That makes much more sense! thumbsup.gif

I am still trying to figure out whether or not I video taped the ISS.

I've been searching all over the internet for any video's done FROM the ground of the ISS as it passed over them.   
But all I am finding are various pictures - no video:
A few pics found on these links:

http://www.badastronomy.com/pix/bablog/2005/ISS_big.jpg
http://www.universetoday.com/am/uploads/2005-1006iss.jpg

And none of these pictures look at all like what I video taped (a few snapshot images from what I video taped below):

The one image with a CIRCLE around it is the plane that is seen farther east above the white object as I start to video tape this:

If anyone has seen any VIDEO of the ISS done FROM the ground as the ISS has passed over them, please let me know.

By the way, the ISS (depending on its magnitude but most often) looks like a "moving" SIRIUS, the brightest star in the sky at this time of year...

SIRIUS can be found in the constellation Canis Major, i think that it's about (here in the East) FULL SOUTH at about 6 PM...just East of Orion. On March 10th the ISS was 0.0 MAG in your area about the same as SIRIUS. Go out tonight and compare, that will give you a good idea. But the ISS NEVER changes direction, and NEVER diseappear in clouds...i've seen the thing about a thousand times...

Was definitely NOT the ISS...

When I first saw it, it was very close, very slow moving and BIGGER than Sirius.  So close that I thought it was a heli at first -but it NEVER blinked and I could not HEAR ANYTHING. I kept waiting for this object to blink - it never did, then I ran and grabbed my Camcorder and went outside and taped it.

So did you get a chance to review "IT" then?? It DOES change directions before it dived into the clouds.. I was wondering if what ever it was did that because the plane that was originally seen farther east above this object, and the plane was coming closer west (towards my house)

My husband keeps telling me it is NOT the ISS - but I have to hear it from others.. LOL (He thinks it's the same thing I taped back in 1992)

To add to all this confusion....

I tried to draw what it looked like AT FIRST SIGHT with what I saw with my EYES only as it flew over head my house. It was intense bright WHITE (I am a terrible artist but hope you get an idea) It was not ROUNDED like a star at all when I first saw it.

The shape was odd and I thought at first it was some sort of helicopter... but it was completely silent and I never saw it blink... The ARROW direction is which way it was flying from where I was watching it .. and it looked like this:

After 10 seconds of waiting for blinking or noise from this thing as it passed by I later video tape it as it is heading east away from me. As I was watching it in the east though, it looked ALOT like what I video taped in 1992 only it was intense bright white.
