"It was the most spectacular ISS pass over South Africa so far" Oleg writes. "It was the brightest object after the Moon, moving fast, capturing our attention for several minutes! I've managed to capture it on camera. The image clearly shows the structure, but faster shutter speed would make it even better. Maybe next time. It was also very interesting to observe the Shuttle chasing the station several minutes later, but it was rather featureless."
