The International Space Station is a habitable artificial satellite in low Earth orbit. The ISS is a modular structure whose
 first component was launched in 1998. Like many artificial satellites, the station can be seen with the naked eye from Earth
 without any special equipment. The ISS consists of pressurised modules, external trusses, solar arrays and other components.
 ISS components have been launched by American Space Shuttles as well as Russian Proton and Soyuz rockets.
Equipment: Dobson 250/1250. Camera: Canon EOS DIGITAL 550D. Barlow Televue 2x. 1/250. ISO1600.
