International Space Station 151/366

We spent the night out at Stanage Edge in Derbtshire last night to do a bit of LP (more of that to come after I've had some sleep!) but the night culminated in getting a shot as the ISS passed over at 3.13 this morning. It was visible for just under 6 minutes as it crossed the sky at 17,500 mph!

Unbelievably the sky was actually starting to get light as dawn was about to break (us light painters don't get much time out at this time of year!) so the trail is not quite as bright as I'd have liked as balancing the exposures of this is very tricky (and you only get one go!)
