Details:
Shenzhou 7 is seen passing through the Summer Triangle region in a twilight sky. The brightest star at the top of the picture is Vega. Altair can be seen at the bottom. Shenzhou 7 was moving noticeably more quickly than a typical ISS pass. I estimate the brightness between magnitude -1 and -2. Canon PowerShot SD750, approx. 12 sec. exposure.
