In an article from 9 News Australia, photographer Dylan O'Donnel gives us a stunning view of the ISS against the backdrop of the moon.

With the space station rocketing around the Earth at approximately 27,600 km/h, astrophotograher Dylan O'Donnell had less than a second to capture the incredible moment using his telescope and digital camera.

In this image, the space station was roughly 400km above Mr O'Donnell's home town of Byron Bay in New South Wales, but even at this distance, the distinct shape and features of the orbital outpost are clearly visible, including its solar panels and various pressurised modules.

The original hi-resolution photo can be found here.

    > only articles we can argue about get comments

    Well that's a stupid thing to say and you're completely wrong.

    (Actually I completely agree. The amount of argument and "need to be right/knowledgeable" around here makes it feel like junior high sometimes).

    ((Also, it's a really great photo))

    The amount of argument and "need to be right/knowledgeable" around here

    Yeah, that's what you think! But I think it is a great picture, too. So we will have to just agree about the disagreement stuff. Or is that "disagree about the lack of agreement"? I'm confused. Often happens when I stare at the moon too long.
