Hello everyone!

On December 8, 2021, from my small homeland (Yuzhno-Morskoy, Nakhodka,
Russia), I took photos (using my damaged camera Canon EOS 60D) of the
ISS above the Sea of Japan, passed among Venus, Moon, Saturn and
Jupiter.

During the imaging (little over 4 hours before docking of Soyuz
MS-20), I saw with the naked eye a bright flare of the ISS: it looked
spectacular and was comparable in brightness to Venus.

This can be seen in the 3rd trail in my composite image

seconds exposure time for each photo) and in the video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQmb64NUv6E  which my mother Larisa
Romanova took at the same time using a mobile phone camera.

With best regards, Filipp Romanov.
