I was out shooting the storms when I got a bit of a clearing to the West. I remembered that the International Space Station was due to pass in a few minutes so I eagerly awaited it hoping to get it passing overhead as well as some lightning in the same shot which had been on a list of shots I wanted to eventually capture. I was shooting with a super wide angle lens so the storm was nearly overhead when I shot this 40 second time lapse. The next included shot at 36 seconds also caught another satellite crossing the path of the ISS as well. Shot with a Pentax K-5 and the Sigma 10-20mm Wide angle lens at F/4.5 and ISO 400.
