This amazing video and photo shows the sequence of the International Space Station (ISS) gliding past the moon.

Aboard were the two Nasa astronauts that had journeyed to the space station aboard the SpaceX Dragon capsule.

The short video clip clearly shows the ISS soaring past the almost-full moon on Sunday night, just a few hours after astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley docked the SpaceX Dragon capsule.

And photographer Alberto Ghizzi Panizza then turned the eight-second footage into a composite photo – showing the tiny space station at 17 different points of its journey across the moon.

The 45-year-old photographer, from Parma, Italy, captured the striking photo at 10.28pm Italian time (9.28pm in the UK) on Sunday night.

The two Nasa astronauts had docked with the International Space Station just three hours beforehand, at 6.22pm BST – after launching from Florida at 3..22pm on Saturday (8.22pm BST).

Alberto said of the historic photograph: ‘It was a very emotional moment not only for me, but for all mankind.’
