The following picture was submitted by French astrophotographer Jérôme Delpau. This is not the first time Jérôme captured great views of ISS transit. Last time he managed to photograph the shadow of ISS on the Moon.

Beside the info in the caption, Jérôme sent some more details in the e-mail (translated from French):
