What also is interesting,
is what John had to do to get the picture and the equipment involved.

From John's instagram account:

John Kraus 17 year old photographer on Florida's Space Coast. On-site rocket launch
photographer for AmericaSpace. Taking a photo every day of the year: 103/365

"Here's a four-image composite of the ISS lunar transit I shot earlier this week.

I managed to capture four frames off the transit despite it lasting under 0.7 seconds.

I had to travel to a precise location in Cocoa Beach to ensure the ISS would cross the
moon through the center of the moon.

I used a precise online clock to perfectly time the transit.

The DSLR and lens were mounted to an equatorial mount, which
counteracts the Earth's rotation and kept the moon in the same location in the frame.


My images came out pretty soft due to the teleconverter I was using, but this stacked
image isn't too bad. Hope you all enjoy!

This image was shot on Sunday, April 9th, right around 11:41:07pm.
I used a Nikon D7100, Sigma 150-500mm lens, and a 2x teleconverter."
