The International Space Station transited the moon the morning of June 15, just south of Los Alamos, CA. There are currently two Russians and three Americans on board. This photo is a composite of 19 frame grabs from a 4K movie I took at 30fps, using every other frame. Settings were f/6., 1/2000 sec., ISO 800.The transition took less than one second. On this occcasion, the ISS was illuminated by the sun.
