The International Space Station Shoots Past Saturn, 10 September 2012

The International Space Station shoots between the bright star Spica and Saturn, then zooms through the heart of the Southern Cross on 10 September 2012 as seen from Adelaide. Ten x 8 second exposures at 400 ASA taken with canon IXUS (click to embiggen).

My animation of all 10 images is below (images stacked and converted to AVI with ImageJ.

By chance looked up the ISS passes on Heavens Above, not expecting anything, to find that tonight's pass was pretty spectacular. Looked good, and the shots didn't turn out too bad.
