Photographers make the most of isolation by capturing the ISS

One photographer is making the most of being stuck at home during the coronavirus pandemic by pointing his camera skyward and capturing the International Space Station (ISS) as it passes overhead.

The space station is positioned 250 miles above the Earth and orbits the planet every 90 minutes. If it’s a particularly clear night then you’re able to see it yourself in the sky – it looks like a fast-moving star.

Thanks to the long exposure, photographers are managing to make the ISS appears like a line of light cutting through the night sky.

Often just caught with a smartphone and a tripod rather than a fancy camera, these photographers have shared their efforts on Twitter.

So, if you want to try and alleviate the boredom of self-isolation for a couple of evenings, maybe head outside and try and get some shots of the night sky.
