The International Space Station – seen with the Moon behind it.

The International Space Station (ISS)

Part of the Perspectives series issued by Chris Hadfield after his return from the International Space Station.

The ISS is about 350 miles from Earth (and the camera), whereas the moon is 350,000 miles from the camera.   This makes the ISS look 1,000 times bigger than it is, relative to the moon.
