Details:
A short trip with a friend outside Bucharest for a much shorter astro-event: the transit of the ISS over the Moon.

A beginners mistake made the shape of the Station a bit blurred (didn’t set the exposure time correct- 2.4 milisec instead of less than 1 milisec). But it will be different next time 🙂

The station passed over the large lava-filled crater Sinus Iridum (Bay of Rainbows).

And a short animation, showing the station move across the lunar surface about 10 times slower compared to the actual event time:
