The second ISS pass of yesterday evening was a zenith pass from my location, and his image is a stack of 30 frames from near the mid-point of the pass. I reduced the exposure from last night to avoid saturating the white thermal panels, and their slightly folded structure can be seen. There are some bright sun-glints on the Leonardo module and some of the sections in the main body of the station, and a pleasing amount of detail is visible, despite the presence of some edge artefacts in places.
