International Space Station flyby over SF, 14th January

View big here if you want to make out what I think is a bit of detail on the space station - I think you can maybe make out the aggregate shape of the panels and the more-brightly-lit station body.

 

The International Space Station passed right over the Bay Area on the morning of 14th of January. From where I was standing in Potrero Hill, it passed close by the moon, but the indefatigable fksr captured it going right in front of the moon here by taking the photo from nearby Marin.

 

At its closest point, it was 404km (80.33 rods) away.

 

This is a composite of 19 shots, taken with a 300mm lens at f/11, 0.2 seconds apart.
