                 Reflecting the International Space Station

   Explanation: Still bathed in sunlight, the International Space Station
   arced through the evening sky over lake Wulfsahl-Gusborn in northern
   Germany, just after sunset on March 25. The familiar constellation of
   Orion can be seen left of the trail of the orbital station's bright
   passage. On the right, Venus is the brilliant evening star above the
   western horizon. With the camera fixed to a tripod, this scene was
   captured in a series of five exposures. How can you tell? The short
   time delay between the end of one exposure and the beginning of the
   next leaves small gaps in the ISS light trail. Look closely and you'll
   also see that the sky that appears to be above the horizon is actually
   a reflection though. The final image has been vertically inverted and
   the night skyscape recorded in the mirror-like waters of the small
                     Tomorrow's picture: pixels in space
