Behind a Tree and into the Shadows

Another photo of the ISS. This time the station can be seen in the crook of the tree a little to the left of center of the image. As it goes behind the tree it fades. This is because at that particular point in its orbit it was entering the earths shadow. Sunset aboard the ISS happens once an orbit, or every 90 minutes or so....
