International Space Station over the Space Coast

#GoodMorning to the Space Coast of Florida, and to the International Space Station and NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration Astronauts NASA Astronaut Randy "Komrade" Bresnik and Joe Acaba, seen here flying over Melbourne Beach (and the notorious and still-present "Cuki", washed ashore after Hurricane Irma).
The high and bright pass was first visible at 5:35 am and was visible for approximately 5 minutes. I ended the exposure early because a beachcomber wielding a very bright flashlight was approaching, and I didn't want the light to mess with the exposure. (You can see the light reflected off the stern of the sailboat.) Aside from the flashlight, everything worked well for this shot, most notably, the skies we clear and the tide was low enough that I could set up (and stay dry) on the west side of the boat.
Specs: 149-second exposure, ISO500 and f5.6 taken with a 14mm lens on a Canon 5D4 (full-frame).
