Space Shuttle Discovery
Here's a photo I took of the Space Shuttle Discovery (STS-91) as it passed over Chicago when docked with the Russian space station Mir, in June of 1998. This was the last docked mission, and my last opportunity to capture both on film. This shot was taken about 10:55 P.M. from my back yard. The Shuttle/Mir had come up from the northwest horizon, passed through the Big Dipper and faded out directly overhead as it entered the Earth's shadow. (Enhanced from original photo, luminance increased in original pixels for the Big Dipper stars and Shuttle trail)
There are a series of satellites called Iridium, that have bright flares over various areas of the world. I captured 2 such flares from Chicago, during the week of Sept. 12, 1998, at about 7 pm. Here are those shots (taken with my 35mm camera, bulb setting for 20 seconds, 50mm lens):
