Yesterday morning was ISS-Solar transit in Lahore, Pakistan
My friend Roshaan Nadeem was in zaman park and I was at my home.
We both used telescopes and captured International Space Station (ISS) pass. See how ISS trails were differently viewed on the solar surface! ?
I used the basic step of the distance ladder which astronomers use for distance measurement. This time, the variable was not the distance to the object, it was the distance between the observing sites. The parallax method says 13km and Google Maps says 12.7km ?✨ Quite close! Isn’t?
This is the beauty of science. It always gets the same answer no matter if you believe in it or not ?
Everything was done just by using images as data.
