Jupiter and its Moons

Here is what Jupiter and its moons looked like last Friday evening. Well, actually, I added the labels later.
I was expecting the International Space Station to come drifting right between Jupiter and the moons at about 7:50 pm, but I think it passed by just outside of the field of view of my camera.

The ISS did look quite impressive to my naked eye, about the same color and brightness as Jupiter as it crossed pretty much the whole sky that night.

Callisto appears to be off the ecliptic. Illusion?
