The International Space Station shoots between the Saturn and Mars (closest to Saturn though), then zooms through alpha and Beta Centauri, the pointers to the Southern Cross below' The sequence was taken at 7:02 pm ACST on 11 September 2012 from Adelaide. Ten x 6 second exposures at 400 ASA taken with canon IXUS (click to embiggen). The bight line bottom left is a plane.
