Crescent Moon and ISS

Jupiter and the crescent moon provided a nice backdrop for this pass of the International Space Station. The ISS is noticeably orange here, probably because of the reflection off the brown solar panels.

The earthshine on the crescent moon shows up nicely and on the larger version of this image three of Jupiter's moons can be clearly seen.

On this occasion the ISS passed neatly between the stars of Orion's Belt
