Orion Versus the Space Station

I captured the Space Station careening toward the Hunter on the night of March 2, 2012, just a little after 7:50 pm. A half-moon illuminated the event… who won? Well, let’s just say Orion’s still up there and the ISS faded away shortly after!

(I’m sure they’ll be back for another go! They’re a plucky bunch.)
