The ISS traces a bright trail even though the sky is quite bright due to a full moon. The exposure is 161 seconds at f/6.3, ISO 400 with a 35mm lens. Image centre is looking SE to the Southern Cross and pointers. The ISS path starts at 22:38:50 NZDT (elevation about 40 degress to the SSE) and ends to the SE when it goes behind the hill.
