Andrew McCarthy, an astrophotography enthusiast shares a three-slide post displaying the conveyance of the ISS versus the Moon. It catches in a sunbeam that is getting viral. The post delights space and astronomy aficionados as it reveals a truly incredible view as the ISS go across the Moon, lit up in astonishing detail.
The subsequent slide in the post illustrates a captivating view of the ISS versus the curve, while the third one is a video in which the location can be seen rapidly moving preceding the Moon.
McCarthy writes in the post, “this was a journey taken from my backyard this dawn, and a tough shot to capture since the moon is essentially unseen against the flash of the sun. The transport counter to the lit section of the moon took just a few hundredths of a second. It displays in a video decelerated down approximately 6x.”
On 10th April, McCarthy shares a thread about the same on Twitter too. The California-based photographer says it was the most challenging transit that he struggles to capture.
He tweets, “today, the @Space_Station momentarily pass through the 5.6% curve moon. This was the most challenging transit I have ever tried to capture. It requires taking more than 150 images per second to make sure I got it covered up appropriately.”
Responding to the transition video of ISS against the Moon, a Twitter user @mailutkarsh97 questions. If the base looks like TIE fighter ship from Star Wars?
Below are more responses to McCarthy’s brilliance.
