This two images were captured during a very short 0.6s transit for which my wife and I traveled about 30 miles from our home. It was our first successful ISS transit over the Moon. Before this shots were taken, just with a few seconds in advance, some distant birds passed over the Moon making us think the ISS had already transited...luckily for us we pushed the shutter button a few more times and the space bird was captured. The H from the ISS shape stand for the Harvest Moon.
