International Space Station caught passing over UK by Hunts photographer

THIS stunning picture shows the International Space Station passing over the UK on Monday night.

Keen photographer Ian Eveleigh, 39, from Somersham, used a long exposure near Warboys. The space station was visible for just four minutes, shortly before 9.30pm.

Ian said: “This was the last of series of passes that have occurred in August where the ISS has appeared particularly bright. It was travelling at around 17,000mph at an altitude of 200-250 miles.

“I rather enjoy the challenges of long-exposure shots, so when I heard the ISS would be visible I figured it had to be worth trying to capture it.”
