Click that caught ISS across the Moon  

London, July 5 (IANS) An Australian photographer has clicked a breathtaking image of the International Space Station (ISS) as it was passing over the Moon.

It took Dylan O’Donnell almost a year to get the stunning image, Daily Mail reported.

The US space station completes an orbit of the Earth every 92.91 minutes and moves at 27,600 km per hour.

Significantly, it passes across the Moon in just 0.33 seconds. The Moon measures about 3,476 km or 2,160 miles across.

“I was super happy to catch the silhouette of the ISS over the disc of the Moon,” an excited Dylan O’Donnell was quoted as saying.

“If you think that it might be a case of sitting there with your camera and a clock, with one hand on the shutter release, you’d be absolutely correct!,” he added.

Knowing the second it would pass, he fired a ‘burst’ mode of exposures in the hope it would show up in review – and it did!
