International Space Station

Here is a picture I snapped of the International Space Station as it flew over on October 28, 2014 at 7:40 p.m. (Nikon D50 at f/5.6,18-55mm lens, ISO 200). The white streak in the middle was the trail formed by the station. It was moving from NW to SE through the constellation of Hercules. It's a little out of focus; I just pointed, opened the shutter and took my chances! The clouds broke just in time!
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
