ISS and the Moon

Another clear evening yesterday. The moon is now becoming more and more prominent in the sky. The International Space Station (ISS) made a pass that brought it close to it in twilight at 18:44 local time (17:44 UTC). I made the photograph below with my Canon Ixus on maximum zoom and 2s exposure:

I also made another moon shot through my ETX-70 telescope:

Later that evening, telescopic points were obtained on the ELINT sat USA 32 and Keyhole sat USA 129.
