This was taken at 23:30 on Thursday evening (24th May) from Winstanley, appearing to pass above the Moon! A 40 second exposure.

Terrific shot, John.
It really is a large, bright object in the night sky. Wouldn't it be great to be on it...!!

All kinds of things going on in the night sky that most of us are unaware of! The moon looks like a giant star - it's a great photo!

Thanks for your encouraging photo John.
I have Spot the Station on my list of Favourites, but haven't given the ISS's journey much attention this year.
I'd previously latched-on to the 'Station, WSW, - just to the right of Stephanie's chimney pot -, and then watched it brighten up as it glided towards the direction of The Simms Road Inn in Garswood - my use of WSW now looking smart.

On Jupiter and Mars...in other words
Keep him there.. In other Worlds.....! ;0))

The Moons a star, Alan? If it were, we would all be instantly cooked to a crisp. In fact... we would never have existed in the first place!
