International Space Station

International Space Station (ISS) fly-over, 12/1/17 5:28 PM. This is a composite of 11 shots as the Station flew over last night. You can see the shields change position as the Station flies from left to right. Many more shots were taken in between these, but I selected these as the clearest. Taken with my 'birding' lens hand-held. It's hard to believe there are people in this machine, 254 miles above the earth! It makes 16 orbits of the earth, or about 1 every 90 minutes, every day!
