The Moon and The International Space Station

First, the Moon. This was a test image taken with my new 150-600mm camera lens to see if it will be of any value for astronomical purposes:

The last couple of nights I’ve been watching out for the International Space Station, knowing that a Soyuz spacecraft had just been launched with new crew members. It was cloudy both nights but I still managed to catch a glimpse of the ISS.

Alas, no sign of Soyuz – and this was the last chance, taken about 22 hours before docking.
