So why are there TIE fighters flying in front of it? Adam Balsam explains how he captured the International Space Station crossing in front of (or transiting) the moon Saturday night from a parking lot in North Reading.
He took four exposures in about 3/4 of a second, then stitched them together into a single image (the space station is moving at 17,000 miles an hour). See the original, full-size version. He posted an animation of the transit as well (more photos by others).
