Astrophoto: Jumping for Joy at the Space Station


Yippee! This is the way I feel whenever I see the International Space Station passing overhead! Astrophotographer Pete Glastonbury from the UK posted this picture on my Facebook page when I mentioned what a great ISS pass I had just seen. In describing the image, Pete said, “My daughter Sammy suggested we use the trampoline to create the photo as a way to illustrate our desire to get into space.”
