Incredible photo shows Space Station over Guernsey

The photo taken by David Le Conte

A local astronomer has captured the moment the International Space Station flew over Guernsey, at the same time it passed in front of the moon's disc.

David Le Conte took the photo at 6:40pm yesterday at the Guernsey Observatory.

It was an impressive feat as the station travels at 19,000 mph and crossed the moon in less than a third of a second.

On board the ISS is British astronaut Tim Peake, who captured a photo of the Channel Islands from space.
