2019 Sep 19 Brunei Spots Spectacular ISS Transit across the Moon

Kuala Belait – The International Space Station (ISS) flew exactly in front of the Moon on Thursday morning, Sep 19, 2019 at precisely 05:29:46.49 am for 0.61 seconds.

Despite of the hazy sky, the space station passing in front of the moon which takes less than a second was observable by a group of astrophotgraphers from the Astronomical Society of Brunei Darussalam over Panaga, Brunei Darussalam.

Although ISS flyovers are frequent, lining up exactly with the moon happens rarely. Visit www.transit-finder.com to find the next lunar and solar transit of ISS from your location.

Its phenomenal to think that on that bright fast tiny speck of light, 400 Km away from Earth there are people on board.” – Photo by Waliyuddin of the Astronomical Society of Brunei Darussalam.
