The International Space Station (ISS) has been captured on lens by two photographers, while it was traversing across the moon, and was closing in on Jupiter, reports Space.com. One of the photographers, Lauren Harnett managed to capture this spectacular moment at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston on Janurary 4th. She clicked a series of images, capturing the ISS making its way across the moon, nearing Jupiter. The image below is nothing but, Harnett's attempt at bringing the progression of the ISS onto a single image.
