The ISS Shoots Past Venus and the Scorpion (26 September, 2013)

The International Space Station passes over Venus and belwo the head of the Scorpion. 8 images stacked and SUMMED in ImageJ. Canon IXUS 400 ASA 5 second exposure. Click to embiggenImages cropped and animated using ImageJ (click to embiggen)

So I got to see the ISS pass I wrote about earlier. I was beautiful, with the brightening ISS gliding above Venus and disappearing into Earth's shadow. The Cygnus cargo craft was supposed to be visible too, but neither I noire JupiterisBig managed to see it. Still, very nice show.
