That's pretty cool ML, well done, is this from your home location ? only ask because the ISS lunar transits always manage to avoid my location by miles.

Thank you Dave, yes and a second possible ISS/lunar transit coming this Sun from my yard.  Just dumb luck, kind of imaging I am best at 😀  This coming pass if not cloudy...would run along terminator line which would be very cool to capture.

I tip my hat to you. That is incredible!

Where are you finding information showing the transit timing?

Calsky.com great site, set up your log & lat, it will send you emails on anything you want in advance of it happening.  ISS transits from your location, other bright passes from your location, moons passing Jupiter, metor showers, comets, endless upcoming space events.  You will like it guaranteed.

Really enjoyed! This kind of thing is not haphazard, it has to be well planned and in addition to luck. A great job.

What incredible timing! I like this a lot. Different from the norm as well! Great picture!
I find myself wanting to look at the moon more and more. Something I was never too interested in before
