Clear skies but bad seeing due to an overhead jet stream for last night's pass of the ISS. Some sequences from the captured video gave decent images of the station, including the recently-arrived Soyuz MS-15 capsule docked to the end of the main axis. The solar arrays are nearly edge-on in these views and appear very dark, despite contrast enhancement applied to the images.

Re-posted after correcting an overlap error in the previous image montage.
