ISS Lunar Transit (2021-02-27)


Opportunities to catch the ISS crossing the Full Moon are rare. This one came within two hours of the exact moment of full. I have been imaging ISS transits for several years now and only twice caught it during the Full Moon. This one required driving into plains of northern New Mexico - passing the Capulin Volcano National Monument along the way.

A fraction of a second later, the ISS was directly above the crater Copernicus. Zoom in to see the space station itself in impressive detail.
