Astrophotographers capture incredible images of the ISS passing across the sun, see

If you like astronomy, or just the mysteries of stars, the sun, and other celestial bodies, here’s an interesting story. An amateur astrophotographer has taken a stunning image of the International Space Station (ISS) passing across the sun.

The virus photo was taken by Mehmet Ergun from his base in Germany on April 2nd. “I was able to shoot the ISS again. I planned to shoot it about three weeks ago. Every time I was fascinated and excited,” Elgan said.

Ergun took pictures using the Lunt LS80 DSII Solar Scope, Rainbow RST-135 Star Tracker, QHY5III174M Camera, Hutech Hinode Solar Guider, and 2x Meade Series 5000 Barlow Lens. This allowed him to film the ISS at the exact moment he passed 300 miles (500 km) overhead in Alzey, Germany.

He has successfully taken some images of the ISS in transit and posted them on Instagram. Instagram has over 14,000 followers. “This is my fourth ISS transit photo, every time I’m fascinated and excited at the same time,” he said.

Special features

The International Space Station (ISS) is the largest human object into space and is 357 feet long.

Mehmet Ergun used a powerful telescope mounted on the camera to capture 34 individual frames as the orbiting ISS passed between planets and Earth in less than a second.

Then the images are matched and you can see the craft racing from one end of the sun to the other in a short animation.

A small satellite-shaped spaceship looks like a miniature model when you see it racing from one side to the other of the shining orange sun.
