I was sitting at a friend’s house, and I noticed there were a lot of stars in the sky, or at least relatively so, considering at my house I’m lucky to be able to see more than a few dozen. I put the camera on the tripod and was taking long exposure shots just for fun. When one particular shot finished, I noticed a long trail in it that was definitely not an aircraft, and we watched over the next 2 minutes or so as it moved across the sky and eventually out of sight. I thought it might have been the ISS, but when I got home and started researching, I found that it was actually the Chinese space station Tiangong-1, which was launched about a year ago.
