    Re: Observe refraction: Earth's Limb from the ISS

    A much longer sequence appears at the head of the RIN website if you've got the patience to watch it.  http://www.rin.org.uk/  Sometimes the stars are rising, sometimes setting, sometimes coming sideways.  The view though different windows, I suppose.  I'm afraid my untrained eye is unable to spot any jumps, but I would rather like to know what the flashes are on the Earth.  I've seen them before fron Britannia flying over US cities.  I thought they were flashes from transport pantographs, but there do seem to be an awful lot of them.  Possibly because the film is speeded up.  DaveP
