On Wednesday, January 4, the International Space Station passed right over the city of Houston which gave Lauren Harnett, a photographer at the Johnson Space Center, a great photographic opportunity to take photos of the ISS passing overhead with the Moon as a stunning backdrop. The ISS is currently orbiting roughly 243 miles above the Earth at average distance between the Earth and the Moon of 238,857 miles.
