Cool Video: Space Station Flies in Front of the Moon

This has been on my bucket list for a while, but I’ve never had the opportunity to witness it myself: seeing the International Space Station transit the Moon. And now thanks to my friend Gadi Eidelheit, I want to see it for myself even more! He captured video and imagery of the ISS scooting in front of the Moon, from Ganot, Israel.

“This was just about 10km from my house!” Gadi told me via email. “I used a Canon 700d with Sigma 18-250 for the first clip and Canon sx50HS for the second clip (maximum zoom which equivalent to 1200mm). To find the best place I used Heavens-Above and a little trial and error! I just choose different locations near my home until I found the correct spot.”
