Region: Middle East

Site: Dasht-e Kavir - Iran

Spot: Maranjab

Date: August 2010

Time-lapse video: In the evening twilight as the full moon rises above Maranjab Desert in Iran, the International Space Station (ISS) appears like a bright moving star, crossing the sky in about 5 minutes. The space station, home to minimum 3 astronauts at any time, is located at about 350 km above the ground, orbiting our planet each 90 minutes at speed of about 28,000 km/h. See this view in a long exposure still image showing trail of the ISS in the sky. Babak Tafreshi/Dreamview.net
