It's been a while since I've captured the ISS, it was due to flyover last evening 6:16pm - 6:21pm motion was southwest to north east, so I let my family/friends know via facebook so they could also go outside and see it.

Put's into perspective when you see it people are living in space, and we are growing with knowledge.

The ISS was very visible on a near full moon night.
Luke (my 13 year old son) and I were outside imagining it on my Canon DSLR 70D, with ultra wide lens 11-16mm @ 11mm, f2.8 constant aperture @ f4, ISO800.
You can see us taking our selfie with the moon over our shoulder as it rose from the east.
What you see are 10 images "stacked", each image is 15 seconds with a 1 second gap as next image is taken. That is gap in streak. 1 image I showed only ISS streak, the other I showed the star rotation (actually earth rotation) over those 160 seconds.

Yes - those are moon shadows you see, like the Cat Stevens song from long time ago.

Just the ISS stacked here, used PSE 15 to do this
