The ISS (International Space Station) flying 250 statute miles overhead. (Notice the white streak in the image that's the ISS) This 30 second exposure captures the awe inspiring nature of our technical accomplishments. Traveling at 17,000 miles an hour the reflections off of the massive solar panels illuminate the football field size of the ISS making it the second brightest object in the night sky.
