Space Station After Sunset by Till Credner

Now that the European Space Agency’s Jules Verne cargo carrier is parked 2000 km in front of the International Space Station, observers have a good opportunity to see both spacecraft in the evening sky,” says amateur astronomer Till Credner. On March 19th he photographed the pair streaking over Hohenzollern Castle in southern Germany: The Jules Verne appears about four and a half minutes before the ISS and they follow the same track across the sky,” he says. “Jules Verne vanishes in the east just as the ISS appears in the west.”
