This single exposure image shows how the International Space Station (ISS) crossed the sky in a few minutes. From the photographer: "I was near Lar National Park with its uniqe view to Mount Damavand (at 5670m the highest peak in Iran). I was star-testing the Pentax 645D 40MP medium format camera that night. Star colors looked good but noise level was higher than my DSLR cameras."
See how Damavand massive volcano appears from the space, photographed with a telephoto lens by astronauts on board the ISS. Amir Abolfath,
