ISS over Texas

Tonight the ISS made about a 43 degree visible pass over San Antonio, TX. I quickly grabbed my telephoto lens and my Canon Digital Rebel XT camera and snapped a few photos. I really didn't expect any to come out since I was holding the camera (no tripod) and since the station moves pretty rappidly, I figured it would blur. But I had one photo of the 20 I took that seems to resemble the station. I'm not sure if it's pure coincidence or if it really is the station. I would like some of you (that have more knowledge about the station) to look at it and let me know what you think. Thanks a lot!

ISS STATUS REPORT: SS07-11

ISS Status Report

The International Space Station's Expedition 14 crew continued work this week on scientific experiments, station maintenance and clean up following a Feb. 22 Russian spacewalk.

An altitude reboost engine firing planned for Friday was postponed following the launch delay of Space Shuttle Atlantis earlier this week. The STS-117 mission was targeted for liftoff on March 15. The shuttle mission was put on hold following a hail storm Monday. The storm caused damage requiring repair to the shuttle's external fuel tank foam.
