In a very transparent evening sky the Moon and Jupiter were caught in more than one image. At 1856 UTC the ISS crossed the very small moon crescent. In 3 seconds the Space Station passed the moon disk. It was the first time I have seen a real transit of the ISS over the moon, and with the conjunction of Jupiter at the same moment, reflecting in the silent water, it has been a perfect moment!
