Perseid shooting star vs ISS

Perseid shooting star vs ISS

I walked out to the 10th fairway this evening to get a different shot of the ISS as it flew overhead. I was blown over when I saw a Perseid flying across the ISS path. I jumped for joy when I saw that both were caught by my camera.

I was very lucky to get a 2nd shot of a shooting star later on my holiday. It can be seen here.
