Captured 4 flybys of the ISS near Rapid City, SD on the night of 6/14/11. Used a Nikon D700, 8 mm, f/4, ISO 800, sequential 10 sec exposures to create a timelapse and then stacked the images of the four passes to create the composite image. The first and last passes were the highest and brightest after sunset and before sunrise. The second and third were further north but still in the sunlight at the higher latitude. The moon was nearly full which lit up the surrounding area.
