Image of the International Space Station passing over Stokesley in North Yorkshire on the evening of 4 June 2017 around 21:37 UT. The track of the ISS can be seen passing above Jupiter and the 81 per cent lit Moon. This image is made up of 21 shots stacked together using StarStaX software. I used a Canon 600D DSLR on a static tripod to get this shot. Each image was a two-second exposure at f/5.6, ISO 400 and 35mm focal length. I'd normally use longer exposures for an ISS pass but at this time of year this would have made the sky too bright.
