The sunlit international space station transiting iconic craters over the last quarter moon. It sailed past Eratosthenes, Copernicus, Kepler, and was on its way to Aristarchus when I captured this moment. My camera was shooting at 155fps during the pass. It was only in the frame of view of the camera for about a quarter of a second.

The colors of the moon are entirely real, and denote the mineral composition of the regolith.  You can learn more about how these are captured on my blog
