We have blogged about Alan Friedman previously in this blog. He is renowned for his artistic, high quality astrophotography.

Recently, he was in contact with Profjohn to let us know that he had captured the following daytime streak of the International Space Station (ISS) in front of the waning gibbous Moon. The animation was captured on September 02, 2007.
