In the “extremely rare” clip, the ISS can be seen flying at great speed across the path of the moon.
New Zealander Josh Kirkley, who has practised astrophotography for four years, set up a telescope and camera in his driveway after receiving a push notification that the ISS would be passing over Auckland.
“My phone had told me that the station should cross the path of the Moon but I thought it was maybe just an error, knowing how rare it was for both to perfectly align,” Mr Kirkley told The Independent.
“I kept an eye on my camera screen for the transit, and after about 10 seconds I saw the tiny black silhouette of the ISS whizz across the lunar surface,” he continued. “It was too small to be see with the naked eye and only would have been visible on my camera screen.”
