A particularly favourable passage of the ISS over Sicily allowed me to capture this shot, which shows the trail crossing the entire constellation of Orion intersecting the famous belt of the greatest hunter of antiquity according to ancient mythology. The division is clear, contrasting the two supergiants of the constellation: Betelgeuse the red and Rigel the blue.
