Christmas Eve ISS 24 Dec 2013. The International Space Station (ISS) flies over East Midlands (1759hrs flyby).  A very bright flyby over the Swinford wind farm, East Mids.

How did I capture this? - Camera (Olympus E-M1) with fisheye lens (Oly 8mm) set on tripod. I located the camera in a field underneath a huge turbine (Boy it was cold/windy). Setting camera in manual mode, f3.5, ISO 320 & 10s exposure time & using remote cable to shoot continuous for approx a dozen or so shots. The turbine was painted with a torch and foreground field with a few flash bursts. Once complete I imported all images & stacked in software to produce this composite image.
