The equipment used to capture was a Nikkon D3300 with a 18-55mm Nikkor Lens with a tripod, 30sec(exposure time), ISO800, 18mm and f/20.
Firstly, my expectation was to photograph the International Space Station. When I arrived at the photo location, i noticed that the moon was full and could cause trouble. Observing a little more i noticed again that the scorpius constellation was also part of the scenery, so it would be an almost unique opportunity to take the photo and that's what I did. Fortunately, i got this conjunction. On this night, the International Space Station was on its 44th expedition.
