A montage of stacked images from an overhead pass of the ISS in late twilight. The sequence runs from right to left and shows the apparent rotation of the ISS as it moves overhead. Each image is a stack of between 15 and 25 frames selected from a pre-processed sequence to have the least blurring and distortion due to seeing.

The time interval between the first and last images is approximately 22 seconds.
