Description
Jim Nickelson, students from the Maine Academy of Natural Sciences, and I captured images (four during the 1.1 second event) of the transit. We were pleased to see the solar panels appear so clearly in the images. Students thought the ISS looked a bit like the TIE Fighters in Star Wars.
