Indiana Harbor arrived Superior 05/20/2020



Indiana Harbor arrived Superior this morning.



I was at Split Rock State Park last night photographing the Milky Way and noticed the Indiana Harbor making its way across Lake Superior at 1 AM. The bright light is actually a cluster of three planets and the Indiana Harbor is on the horizon below the planets.

  1. Beautiful...I like watching the boats out on the lake at night, too, using Two Harbors Depot Cam, Hillside Cam, Bayfront Cam, Superior Cam....all those views you give us, Dennis. :) Grammie Pat, Roberts,/WI

  6. I watched the space station fly over Tuesday night. I had no idea how big and bright that thing is. If I were smarter and a better photographer, I'd probably try to time-laps that thing. I use an app from the ISS folks that warns me when it's coming but you still have to be lucky to have the camera pointed in the correct direction.

    Do you use any special lens or camera settings to take these pictures?

  8. This image is taken with a 24mm lens, set at F1.4, and 15 second exposure. It is also four separate images digitally stitched together to cover a wider area then the 24mm lens. The Milky Way is actually quit dim and you need a dark environment without any moonlight to make it work.
