A small dark screen gives no clue to what you will soon see when you click the little black triangle. So click it and be amazed before reading on. And here is Peter's explanation: This started as a few images of ISS transiting the full moon that I took on the 14th of August. I then decided to make a movie where we could follow ISS and fly over the Moon's surface. I needed many more pictures than the ones I captured at 15 i/s during the 1.09 s transit so I constructed/interpolated nearly 10 times as many images and at a much higher scale. And, nearly 2 weeks later, here it is :-)
