I awoke at 5:34am and remembered an email from a few days before. It said the space station was to pass over my region starting at 5:38. When I got to the front window, it was high overhead moving toward the eastern horizon.
Looking to the southeast I found Mars in Scorpius. It had moved from its position the morning before. Here depicted by The In-The-Sky.org Planetarium of Dominic Ford. Being only 13˚ F this morning, I opted not to go outside for my own photograph.
It was a good start to the day. Morning twilight was not evident yet. I went to the kitchen to look at the digital clock on the stove. No lights were on in the house yet. My eyes glanced right then left. I noticed the time numbers on the clock looked like a series of individual images across my view when I glanced right or left. Could I capture that with a camera?
I held my phone up with the camera turned on. It focused on the numbers. I shook the phone vigorously and pressed the shutter.
I moved in closer for two more shots. Image data later said the exposures were 1/15 sec each. My eyes were not deceiving me earlier. There were separate images as the time flashed on the clock.
I put down the phone and got my digital camera. I set the exposure for 0.5 sec, a delay timer for 10 sec, and gave the camera vigorous movement for two exposures. Very cool. And, all this before I had coffee.
