This became known from McCarthy's Twitter account. This shot was taken using two professional telescopes (to see the photo, scroll down to the end of the news story).
"One of the most difficult shots I've ever taken," said the astrophotographer.
He explained that the image was taken in broad daylight, when the transit passed through the growing crescent moon.
"It was taken with two telescopes in tandem. This is the most detailed image of the ISS transit I have ever taken," Andrew McCarthy added.
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL also reported that astronomers for the first time managed to see how one of the largest black holes J2157 tears a neighbouring star to pieces, turning it into a cosmic spaghetti. They called the phenomenon the Scary Barbie, noting that it is one of the longest, brightest and most energetic space objects ever observed.
