ISS skims Orion

Image of the International Space Station skimming just above the constellation of Orion. Taken on 3/3/10 at around 8:05pm.

 

Contrary to what your eyes may think, the ISS was actually moving from bottom right towards top left. It dimmed out because it was crossing into the Earth's shadow

 

Taken with a Canon 300D + kit lens. 18mm @ f/5.6 ISO 400 45s exposure.
