The ISS (along with the Space Shuttle docked to it), were visible over the New York Metropolitan region for three minutes on November 22, 2008. The approach began at 5:33pm; an hour after sunset. The ISS was visible because it reflected sunlight which caused it to shine brighter than any other object in the sky.
The ISS is in orbit 240 miles from earth and travels about 18,000mph. This image was captured moments before it faded away 25 degrees above NE.
18mm(+1.6x factor). 30seconds @ F8. Canon 40D, tripod mounted.
