The photographer took a stunning picture of the ISS against the background of the daytime Moon

Astrophotographer Andrew McCarthy took a beautiful picture of the International Space Station (ISS) crossing the crescent moon. He worked during the day, so that the research complex seemed to be illuminated by bright light and easily distinguishable.

I have two cameras – color and monochrome, they have different advantages. In this case, I used both telescopes. Then I combined the best pictures from them and got this photo.

For the sake of this shot, McCarthy traveled to a remote part of the desert in Arizona (USA) and worked in sweltering heat, the thermometer showed 41 degrees Celsius. At the same time, he had to act very quickly and accurately — he knew that the ISS would appear on the right background for only a quarter of a second. The orbital station is moving at a speed of 28,000 kilometers per hour.

If my position on the Ground was even slightly wrong, the camera would completely miss this transit.
