Space Station and the Moon

The Moon was five hours from full Wednesday evening, when the International Space Station passed right in front of it, as seen from Bonaire.

Here is a short video - the space station moves from left to right across the middle of the Moon - don't blink!

There is plenty of room for improvement, but at this stage of the game, I'm happy to have captured it at all. The Moon was still pretty low in the sky and the Bonaire winds bounced the camera around quite a bit.

If you can click on it to see it full size, it will be easier to see the space station.
