We've been lucky enough this past week to have clear skies and a good view of the International Space Station roaring through the sky at 27724 km / 17227 mph.

Woh, that's an unusual capture.
15sec or so exposure I take it?
Could mistake it for a shooting star.

Thanks Ash. It was a 25 sec exposure. The ISS is the second brightest thing in the sky next to the moon. When you see it you know exactly what it is. Luckily I live in the high altitudes so I don't get much light pollution at night making it easier to capture such events.
